Serve your taste buds with delicious and crispy Aloo Paratha. The unyeasted dough for flatbread is quick to make, and the filling is full of spice.
- 300 gm plain/wheat flour (plus 2 cups for dusting)
- 2 tbsp Oil
- ½ cup Water
- 2 tbsp oil/butter
- 500 gm boiled potatoes, coarsely chopped
- ½ onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp finely grated ginger
- 1 long green chilli, thinly sliced
- 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 2 tbsp coarsely chopped coriander
- Salt as preferred
- Add oil and fry the onion in a pan. Add cumin seeds, green chilli, garlic and ginger. Later, add boiled potatoes and mash them all together. Then, stir in coriander and put the filling aside.
- Combine the flour, water, oil and salt in a large bowl. Knead it till soft with your hands or in a stand mixer.
- Make small dough balls and roll them out into 3 to 4-inch circles. In the centre, add a spoonful of potato filling.Note: Be very careful and apply pressure evenly. Ensure that the potato mixture is mashed well.
- Take one side and start pleating, joining the pleats in the centre. Seal the dough and round it with your fingers. It would appear something like a dumpling. Roll it into round parathas. Press very lightly to make sure the mixture does not come out.
- Brush oil/butter in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Roast parathas one at a time until golden brown on both sides.
A quick tip:
- While making the stuffing, mash the potatoes an hour before you start making the parathas.
- To make it more healthy and enhance the taste, you can add seasonal veggies and leafy greens.
