The stuffing is zero oil and prepared with mashed potatoes, onions, green chilies and some spices. Dried mango powder gives it a nice tangy flavor.
You can also use lemon juice instead of dried mango powder. However, I always prefer dried mango powder for paratha stuffing mixture as it saves filling from becoming wet.
