For the Dough:

1 tablespoon oil or ghee
A pinch of salt
Water, as needed
For the Filling:

Aloo Paratha Filling:
2 large potatoes, boiled and mashed
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 green chilies, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
Salt to taste
Fresh coriander leaves, chopped

Paneer Paratha Filling:
1 cup crumbled paneer (Indian cottage cheese)
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 green chili, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
Salt to taste
Fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

Gobi Paratha Filling:
1 cup grated cauliflower
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder

Salt to taste Fresh mint leaves, chopped

Step 1: Prepare the Dough
In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, oil or ghee, and a pinch of salt.
Gradually add water and knead the mixture into a smooth and soft dough. The dough should not be too sticky or too dry. Adjust water or flour as needed.
Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for at least 15-20 minutes.

Step 2: Prepare the Filling
Choose your preferred filling from the options above or get creative and mix and match the ingredients.
In a separate bowl, combine all the filling ingredients and mix well to ensure even distribution of flavors.

Step 3: Stuff and Roll the Parathas
Divide the dough into equal-sized balls, slightly smaller than a tennis ball. Take one dough ball and flatten it with your hands. Dust it with flour to prevent sticking.
Roll the dough ball into a small circle, about 4-5 inches in diameter.
Place a generous spoonful of the filling in the center of the circle.
Gather the edges of the dough and bring them together to seal the filling, creating a stuffed ball.

Step 4: Roll the Stuffed Ball into a Paratha
Dust the stuffed ball with flour and carefully roll it into a flat disc using a rolling pin. The paratha should be about 6-7 inches in diameter.
Be gentle while rolling to avoid the filling from oozing out.
Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls and filling.

Step 5: Cook the Parathas
Heat a griddle or tava over medium heat.
Place a rolled paratha on the hot griddle and cook for about 1-2 minutes or until you see bubbles forming on the surface.
Flip the paratha and apply some oil or ghee on the cooked side.
Cook the other side until golden brown spots appear, gently pressing with a spatula to ensure even cooking.
Repeat the cooking process for the remaining parathas.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy
Remove the cooked parathas from the griddle and place them on a plate. Serve the hot and flavorful stuffed parathas with yogurt, pickle, or your favorite chutney.
