Cumin powder ...... 1 tsp
Coriander powder .... 1 tsp
Amchoor powder / dry mango powder ... 1/2 tsp (optional)
Salt .................. to taste

Method:
1. Mix all the ingredients for stuffing and set aside.
2. Knead the dough adding ajwain, salt, ghee or oil and water as needed. Rest it for 5-10 minutes.
3. Roll out a small portion and spoon the stuffing.
4. Gather the edges sealing them and make a small pouch.
5. Flatten it and roll out gently.
6. Roast the paratha on a heated griddle spooning a little ghee or oil.
