Pinch 2 small balls from the kneaded dough, roll out two  8" rotis.

Place lot of filling on one roti...and...

cover with the other.

Pat gently, dust in flour, and roll out to a slightly thick paratha

Trim the edges with a pizza cutter

Heat a non stick tava, roast the parathas dry on both sides

flipped over , some oil plus ghee, drizzled around, and cooked well on both sides

You can cut them into halves and serve with any pickle and yogurt or any side dish or a nice chutney.

*A small piece of ginger and couple of pods of garlic can be grated and added too, while sauteeing the veggies
* If you do not possess a microwave steamer, you can pressure 
cook the veggies for one whistle, just to soften them.
* we can also stuff the filling inside the dough, and roll, as we do for aloo parathas. Choice is ours.
