Sweet potato stuffed flat bread/ Sweet potato Boli

Sweet potato stuffed paratha

flat breadFlat bread filled with different ingredients is my all time favourite. On my storage shelf, I had 2 sweet potatoes which were past their prime. I didn’t want to make fries with them as I had plans to make Chappati for dinner. Combining these two, the dough and sweet potatoes I decided to make Boli -a flat bread with sweet stuffing. To make it healthy, I opted for whole wheat instead of white flour. I was grinning all the way while rolling it because creating something different with traditional recipes gives me an awesome pleasure.


  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • salt
  • water


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes

    Oh so this is a sweet potato stuffed sweet flat bread. When I was small my mother made meethi roti for us, that was the best snack. The sweet boli reminds me of that, can’t wait to try this. Have a happy new year 🙂
