4. Make round balls of the wheat dough.  Roll each ball big enough (4 - 5 inches diameter) to hold the stuffing.  Place 1 - 2 tbsp stuffing in the centre and gather the edges to form a round ball.  Let the stuffed balls rest for a couple of minutes.  Roll the stuffed balls gently to the desired thickness dusting some flour.
5. Heat a griddle/tawa and roast the rolled Gajar Parothas both sides.  Drizzle little oil or apply some butter while roasting the parathas.
