Parathas are the quintessential North Indian breakfast dish—savory and spicy at once. The best way to eat them is with a dollop of butter and a little bowl of yogurt sweetened with brown sugar or with some achaar (spicy pickle). My children have been raised on these, which are essentially roti stuffed with everything imaginable. This recipe is likely the most popular paratha, one stuffed with spiced potatoes, and my recipe is dedicated to my Omi uncle in Delhi. When I first made them for him over a decade ago and asked him how they were, he answered honestly: “Not so good.” Thanks for the incentive to get it right, Uncle!
