Aloo Paratha

This is the first breakfast dish that I made post marriage  This is when we shifted to Bangalore and were settling down. Today I made this dish and there is a hell lot of difference in the taste. I actually don't remember what all I added then. But being a south indian, I should say I am happy about the tastez. So here goes my recipe. Happy cooking...


For dough:
Wheat flour – 2 cups
Salt as required
Water as required

For stuffing:
Potatoes - 3 (boiled and mashed)
Onion – 1 medium
Green chilli - 1 tbsp
Ginger - 1 tbsp(chopped)
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Carom seeds(Ajwain) – 1 tsp
Kasuri Methi - 1 tsp
Dry mango powder(amchur) - 1 tsp
Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
Wheat flour for dusting
Salt as required
Ghee for cooking


Mix all the ingredients for stuffing
Take dough and flat it with a rolling pin

Put 1 1/2 tbsp of stuffing 
Close the stuffing and seal it 

Seal all the edges 
Roll it again with a rolling pin into a paratha

Place the paratha on pan and cook on
Flip and cook for 2 minutes

Mix all the ingredients for dough and rest it for half hour.
For the stuffing mix all the ingredients together and mix well
Divide the dough into four portions. Roll it with rolling pin and flat it out a little. Put 1 ½ tbsp. of the stuffing and close it and roll it again. Now be very careful while rolling. Do not apply a lot of pressure as the stuffing can come out. 
Heat a pan (tawa) and drizzle a little bit of ghee and allow it to heat up on medium heat.
Place the paratha on the pan and smear a little ghee on top
Allow it to cook on the underside and then flip and cook.
Cook approximately 2 minutes on medium heat on both sides.
Remove from the pan and serve hot with curd and pickle.
