Instructions
 

How to make paratha dough

  • Firstly, take 1 cup whole wheat flour. Add 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp oil to it.
  • Knead it into a dough with water as required. I have used 1/2 cup water to turn the flour into dough. Rest the dough for at least 10 minutes and then grease with 1 tsp oil and make it smooth by kneading again for a minute.
  • Divide the paratha dough into four equal balls.

How to make aloo stuffing

  • Further, take 1 big boiled potato or 2 small boiled potatoe
  • . Peel the aloo(potato) and add 1.5 tbsp fresh and chopped coriander leaves, 1/2 tsp cumin powder, 1/4 tsp garam masala powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp chaat masala, 1/2 tsp kashmiri red chili powder, 1/4 tsp dry mango powder (amchur powder) to it.
  • Mix well and it will turn into a potato stuffing shaped in a dough.
  • Similarly, divide the aloo stuffing into 4 balls as we will be making four parathas out of the dough.

How to make aloo paratha

  • Take one ball of dough and roll it into a 4-5 inch diameter roti by dusting some flour.
  • Further, put one aloo stuffing ball on it.
  • Bring the edges towards the center to close the stuffing inside the rolled roti for making the potato stuffed paratha. Flatten the stuffed ball gently between your palms.
  • Roll out the stuffed ball into an 8-9 inches diameter roti by rolling gently with the rolling pin and dusting with some wheat flour.
  • Heat a non-stick tawa and drizzle a few drops of oil on it for greasing just to make sure that the paratha does not stick.
  • Transfer the rolled-out stuffed roti on the tawa and continue cooking on medium-high flame till the bubbles appear on it.
  • After a minute, flip the paratha and cook the other side of the paratha.
  • Flip the side again and now spread 1/2 tsp oil or ghee on the paratha and flip again.
  • Apply the ghee or oil on the other side also and flip and cook by pressing with a spatula.
  • Serve easy to make irresistible aloo paratha (aalu ka paratha or potato paratha) with butter, curd, or pickle.

Notes

Notes-
  • Do not skip adding fresh coriander leaves and the mentioned spices in the aloo stuffing as they give a very good taste to the aalu ka paratha.
  • Apply the ghee or ghee to the paratha only when paratha is partially roasted.
  • If guests are coming over, you can prepare half-done parathas in advance, like roast them partially and store them. While serving, again cook them on tawa after applying ghee or oil. I will help you to serve hot parathas in bulk in a hassle-free manner.
  • Finely chopped onions and green chilies can be added to the aloo stuffing if you like them.
  • You can increase or decrease the thickness and size of the paratha as per your liking. Kids like mini paratha so consider serving them mini paratha garnished with some ketchup.
