Fry for few minutes and remove from fire. Mix minced green chilies and finely cut onions, coriander leaves to the potato mixture when it cools down.

Method I for preparing chappathis:

Make medium sized balls from the dough. Flatten each ball and keep a tablespoon of filling inside. Close and seal well all around. Press and dredge in wheat flour and roll out into thick parathas. Heat a 'tawa' and fry these parathas using oil for both sides while frying. Serve hot.

Method II for preparing chappathis:

Take one ball and roll into thick and 3 inches width chapatti. Make another of the same size.

Place a tablespoon of filling on the middle of one chapatti. Carefully spread it leaving 1/4 inch gap all around. Keep another chapatti on top. Using little water carefully seal both the chapattis all around. Dredge on flour and roll again into big paratha. Fry on hot 'tawa' using l/4 tsp.of oil for each side of chapatti
