How to Make Tasty Aloo Paratha

  • Prepare dough and keep aside.
  • Mash or grate boiled potatoes.
  • In a medium sized bowl, add potatoes with remaining filling ingredients and mix well.
  • Keep a tava or skillet on the stove at medium to high flame.
  • Divide dough into equal size balls.
  • Divide filling into equal size balls.
  • Roll out one dough ball into a 3-4 disk.
  • Place a filling ball on the centre of the disk and fold the dough around the filling ball, completely enclosing it. Pinch the dough ends together.
  • Flatten the stuffed ball and dip it into the dry flour on both sides.
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out the stuffed ball into a tortilla shaped disk. The paratha should not be too thin.
  • Place the rolled paratha on the heated skillet and cook until bubbles start to appear.
  • Start to roll the next paratha while one is cooking to get a process in place. This is a great time saver.
  • Once bubbles appear, flip the paratha over and lightly spray it with cooking oil.
  • Allow the other side to cook for 30 seconds and flip it over once more.
  • Again, lightly spray with cooking oil.
  • Keep flipping and cooking the paratha until the look of raw dough is gone and it looks completely cooked.
  • It should have light golden brown spots.
