Aloo (Potato) Paratha

Aloo Paratha is the tastiest, easy to make dish. Being the favorite of my husband, I generally prepare Aloo paratha once a month.



Ingredients:

3 Medium Potatoes
2 green chilies
1 clove garlic
2 tbsps cilantro
salt to taste
1 tbsp grated ginger
3 cups of whole wheat (chapati) flour
1 1/2 cups of water
2 tbsps oil

Method:
  1. Mix whole wheat flour and water and make soft chapati dough. Set aside.
  2. Bake Potatoes till done and peel off the skin.
  3. Grind ginger, garlic, cilantro and green chilies together adding no water.
  4. Mash potatoes, add salt and the ground spices mix well.
  5. Take a small fist sized chapati dough and roll it till its 6 inches in diameter on a flat surface dusting occasionally.
  6. Take a small fist sized ball of potato stuffing, put the stuffing inside the chapati roll and close it, making it a small ball.
  7. Dust the surface of the ball and roll the paratha as thin as possible.
  8. Pat little bit of oil on the top and bake it on the hot skillet till done flipping sides.
  9. Serve hot with butter, Chutney or plain yogurt.
