Roll the dough slightly thicker and place the stuffing mix in the center. Gather the dough edges from all sides to make a ball. Roll into round parathas, using wheat flour for dusting. Put the paratha on a hot tava, cook for a minute and turn once. Add a little oil around the edges, turn again and fry the other side. Serve with raitha or any chutney.
