All time favorite Aloo Paratha

How to make Aloo Paratha

Parathas are Indian stuffed or plain flat breads. I guess Aloo parathas are very popular amongst all parathas. These parathas origin from Northen part of India, especially Punjab. It is prepared with whole wheat flour and spicy potato stuffing.

The best part about this recipe is - It can be enjoyed at any time of the day, it makes a perfect breakfast and could be a meal too. It is a quick recipe yet would highly delight guests too ..

This recipe will make 6 medium size parathas.

Here is what we need -

  • 3 medium sized potatoes
  • 1 big onion
  • cilantro
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 4 green chilies
  • pinch of red chili powder
  • 1 spoon of kitchen king masala ( optional ) (Indian store bought)
  • salt
  • 1 & 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 2 tbs oil       
Whats Next -

Boil Potatoes in pressure cooker for around 8-10 minutes. Let boiled potatoes come to room temperature.

Meanwhile make a dough. Take wheat flour and a pinch of salt in a bowl, add required amount of
water little by little to make a smooth dough. Knead dough with little oil.
Let it sit covered for 10 minutes.

Grate boiled potatoes. In it, add chopped onion. Add paste of green chili, garlic and cilantro. adjust salt as per your taste. Add a pinch of chili powder. Again this is optional. Add 1 table spoon of Kitchen King masala. It gives a great taste. Mix it well to prepare a homogeneous batter.

Make 6 big balls of dough as well as of potato batter. We have to stuff this potato batter in it. I usually make 2 small thick rotis and stuff the batter inside. Once you stuff the batter cover it properly alongside the rotis. Dust some flour on it. Let this sit until you prepare all 6 small stuffed ready to roll parathas.

Heat griddle on medium heat. Now one by one roll these stuffings to medium size thick parathas.

Make golden brown parathas by putting some oil around. Serve these hot with yogurt or pickle.
