  4. Onion raita is now ready.
  5. Now that the potatoes are cooked, drain the excess water, remove the skin of the potatoes and mash well with a fork or masher.
  6. Then take a bowl, add flour, 1/2 tsp salt and water (as needed) and knead to form soft but firm dough.

  14. Allow it to cool and divide it into 8 equal portions
  15. Now take the dough and divide this also into 8 equal balls.
  16. Take 1 ball, roll into a small circle and place one portion of the potato mixture on it.
