Potato stuffed Indian bread / Aloo Parantha

Aloo Parantha is now worldwide famous dish..Thanks to Punjab to actually give it a local exotic frame. Spicy boiled potatoes stuffed in parantha, topped with a dash of white butter with masala curd is a heavenly dish. Ask an Indian and he will rarely say no to it. A simple breakfast dish or a tiffin dish, aloo parantha is loved by one and all. Here, I am sharing the recipe with pics...


Boiled potatoes - 2
Green chillies - 2 chopped
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup chopped
Ginger - 1tbs chopped
Red chilly powder - 1/2 tbs
Garam masala - 1/2 tbs (optional)
Amchoor powder - 1/2 tbs (optional)
Onion - 1 chopped ( optional)
Wheat flour dough - For 5 paranthas
Salt to taste.


Make semihard dough out of wheat flour and water..take help from the pictures.

For stuffing, mash boiled potatoes, add all the ingredients except wheat flour and salt.

Mix properly.

Now divide dough into balls. Take a ball , make a well in the centre with the help of thumb and forefinger and stuff about minimum 1 big tbs of potato stuffing in it. Then seal the edges.

On one side heat a tawa / skillet on gas. On another side, roll stuffed dough ball on the dry flour and with the help of a rolling pin, flatten it a bit. You don't have to make it thin, its better if the stuffing doesn't comes out.

Slowly place this parantha on the hot tawa, let it cook for approx 3 minutes.

Now flip the side and pour one tbs of oil and smear it all over the parantha. Till this time the lower side must be cooked. so again flip it. Press with a spatula for even cooking. Keep flipping till you get the crispiness of your liking.

Remove parantha from the tawa and place it in a serving plate. A dash of butter adds to the taste and serve with mango pickle and masala curd.

Hope you liked it...
