Aloo paratha

Aloo paratha

Aloo paratha is a tasty and filling north Indian breakfast. This paratha does not require any gravy curries as it is stuffed with spiced potato mix. Usually pickle, curd or mint chutney are the preferred sides for this Indian stuffed flatbread breakfast. My version of aloo paratha is very simple yet tasty. The stuffing is simply a mix of mashed potatoes, onions, green chillies and chaat masala.

Take atta in a bowl. Add salt, oil and water to it.

Knead well and add a tablespoon of ghee. Knead again and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Finely chop onion, green chilies and coriander leaves. Mash the boiled potatoes.

Add salt and chaat masala to the mashed potatoes. Add finely chopped onions, green chilies and coriander leaves to it. Mix well. The filling is ready.

Divide the prepared dough into 6 equal portions. Divide the filling into 6 equal portions as shown here.

Flatten the dough to a small circle using hands and place a ball of filling at the centre. Cover the filling with the dough in the form of a ball.

Generously dust flour on the counter top and place the ball and roll it gently so that the filling does not come out.

Heat a pan and place the rolled paratha over it. Add a teaspoon of ghee on top of it. Flip it when the down side is cooked partially.

Roast both sides till brown spots appear.

Serve with pickle, curd or mint chutney.
