Aloo paratha

This is my husband’s favorite paratha in fact I think loads of people like it. There are different ways of making aloo paratha, in some recipes the potato filling is cooked and in some its not. Here I have used the later version. I hope you all will like it.

4-5 Parathas

Boiled potatos- 2 medium sized
Finely chopped Onions - 1/2 cup
Chopped green chillies - 2 tbs(as per taste)
Chopped ginger - 1 tsp
Chopped Coriander - 2 tbsp
Chili flakes- 1 tsp (as per taste)
Salt as per taste

Note- For parathas the dough should be soft and potato for stuffing should be boiled one night/4-5 hours before preparation (preferably kept in refrigerator) which makes it hard and it doesn’t spill out while rolling the parathas. Vegans avoid ghee/butter as it is made of milk.

For Dough-
Mix the flour, salt and water. Make the dough and keep it covered for 15-20 min (It will make the dough soft). Now knead the dough well (approx 5 min) and it’s ready for stuffing.

If possible grate the boiled potatoes instead of mashing it (this will avoid any lumps and won’t break the parathas while rolling). Add all the ingredients in grated potato and mix well. Make small balls (size of golf ball) by using approx 2 tbsp of the potato mixture.

Now take a small portion of dough. Roll it in small disk (puri). Take it in the Middle of your palm. Keep the potato ball at the center of the in the disk/ puri. Cover it from all the side with disk/puri and roll it smoothly. Roast it well on both the sides by applying oil. Before serving apply a teaspoon of butter and serve it with chilled curd, salad and pickle. Yum yum :)
