In a large bowl, add two cups of wheat flour together with half a teaspoon of salt and one teaspoon of oil. Mix well and start adding water in small portions to knead the soft dough, knead the dough for about ten minutes until you get a smooth dough then cover the dough and set it aside for 20 to 25 minutes to rest.
Meanwhile, prepare the stuffing for the parathas and you will need about 5 boiled potatoes that are peeled and mashed then add in spices to the mashed potatoes including salt, coriander, red chilly powder, finely chopped green onions, coriander powder, ginger, and finely chopped green. Mix everything really well. Once the dough has set enough, oil your hands and lightly knead the dough then depending on how you want the dough, you can make big or small paratha, so cut the dough into the size that you want.
Roll the dough into a round shape then place it onto a lightly floured surface and using a rolling pin, roll the dough to a round shape about 3 to 4-inch diameter then top it with the stuffing equal to the quantity of the dough. Lift the dough from all sides and close the stuffing really well then flatten the dough to spread the toppings evenly in the dough.
Lightly dust the dough then with a rolling pin, roll the dough again to a round shape. Add some oil top a heated pan and place the paratha over it and let it start cooking from beneath for about two minutes then flip the other side and add some oil over the top of the paratha.
