Aloo Paratha

Posted by Lisa on Thursday, January 25, 2007. Filed under:

Actually, this is my first time to cook Aloo Paratha in my own kitchen. And I found out that the process is not that difficult as I thought. I think I will make aloo paratha more often than before...

For the Dough:
2 cups Whole wheat flour (atta)
3/4 warm water for kneading (approx)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp ghee or butter.

For Stuffing:
3 large boiled potatoes
1 onion, finely chooped (small size)
2 tbsp minced cilantro
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp red chili powder, or to taste

For the dough: Sieve the flour together with salt. Add warm water a little at a time, and knead to form a soft dough. Set aside

For the stuffing: Mash well the boiled potatoes. Add all the stuffing items to mashed potatoes and mix it properly.

Divide the dough into balls of equal portions and. Roll one ball to form of a small puri. Now put a small quantity of above mixture (potatoes) over it, close it from all sides. Apply some flour on both sides and roll it gently into a paratha. Heat a flat pan and cook paratha, by applying 1/2 - 1 tsp. oil on each side, until light brown and serve hot.
