Aaloo Paratha (potato stuffed with flatbreads) Recipe

Aloo paratha literally means potato-stuffed flatbreads. Though there are many variations of stuffed paratha but Aaloo Paratha is one of the staple breakfast items in a Punjabi family. Generally, parathas are made with lots of love and affection. Most of the time it gets roasted with lots of Desi ghee (Pure Ghee) and then served with dollops of white butter or Makhan as we call them in Punjabi.

However, you can add less ghee and even roast the parathas with oil.

Ingredients:

For Stuffing:
  • Boiled Potatoes – 4-5
  • Salt – to taste
  • Red Chilli powder – 1/2 tbsp
  • Aamchoor powder – 1/2 tbsp
  • Garam Masala – 1/2 tbsp (you can also avoid this if you want)
  • Dhania powder – 1/2 tbsp
  • Green chili – 1-2 chopped
  • Fresh coriander leaves
Dough:

You are required to make a basic dough with whole wheat flour (atta), salt, oil, and water. Making the dough is very easy and you can either knead with hands or in a stand mixer.
