Aloo Paratha

Aloo Paratha needs no introduction. It is one of the most famous paratha dish from North India. It is a very popular breakfast dish and extremely tasty and yummy, that makes one lick their fingers for more and more. It is best when served with curd / raita and achar / pickle. wow my mouth is watering😋 as I am writing...😊

Ingredients:
For the Dough...
Whole Wheat Flour / Atta 1 cup
Salt as per needed
Oil 1 tbsp
Water as required for kneading the dough 

For the Stuffing...
Potatoes 2, boiled and mashed 
Onion 1 small finely chopped {Optional}
Green Chili 1, finely chopped
Red Chili Powder 1 tsp{optional}
Salt as per taste
Cumin powder / Jeera Powder 1 tsp
Amchur Powder{Dry Ginger Powder} 1 tsp or Chaat Masala 1 tsp
Freshly Chopped Coriander Leaves little

For Frying / Roasting the Paratha...
Ghee / Oil as required

Method:
Prepare the Dough...
In a bowl take flour / atta, salt and oil and start kneading to a get a smooth dough using required water. Once the dough is done, cover with a cloth and allow it to rest for 10 to 15 minutes. 

Now lets prepare the stuffing...
For the Stuffing...
Boil the potatoes in pressure cooker with as per needed whistles until the potatoes are boiled. Once cooled, open and mash the potatoes properly. Transfer to a bowl.

Now add the chopped onion, freshly chopped coriander leaves, chopped green chili , red chili powder, salt, cumin powder, amchur powder or chat masala and mix everything well. Now make lemon sized balls and keep ready aside.

Lets start making the Parathas...
Take the dough, knead once and divide into small or lemon size balls and keep ready aside.

Take one ball of dough, dust some dry flour / atta and start to roll to a small size circle. Now place the one ball of stuffing and start sealing the edges and get all to the center and remove if any extra dough is left out near the sealed edges. 

Now flatten the dough, dust some dry flour / atta on it, and roll to form a normal size paratha. Be careful, else the stuffing may come out if lot of pressure is put while rolling.

Now its time to fry / roast the parathas...

Heat a tawa. Once medium hot, place the stuffed paratha carefully. 
As it starts getting brown spots, flip it to other side. Apply ghee / oil as needed and again flip it to the front side. Again apply ghee / oil and cook until done both the sides.

Transfer to a serving plate.

Serve with achar / pickle and curd / raita.


Enjoy this delicious breakfast with family😋...
