The next important step is to prepare the stuffing for the paratha. The stuffing should be at room temperature before you start filling it inside the dough. If the stuffing is hot, it might end up squeezing out at the seams.
Get Rid Of Excess Moisture
Be it aloo, gobhi, broccoli or any other stuffing, one has to be careful about the amount of moisture in it. If you don't want your parathas to crack open at the seams, make sure that the water has been completely squeezed out from the stuffing. Apart from this, the mixture has to be properly minced without any big lumps.
