Aloo Paratha

Aloo Paratha with Pickle Raita
This is a soft yummy paratha dish that is many of us favorite..I have my own way of making it..I love a lot of stuffing inside the paratha,so I usually make the potato ball a little bigger than the dough.And also I add some chat masala in the filling which makes the filling more tasty..The best combination for this is pickle raita.It is not a big deal to make..Just take some mango pickle and mix it with thick curd,that’s it pickle raita is ready...Main step in this dish is please try to marinate the dough for 15 min,this what makes the paratha soft and easy to roll...I served this with “15 min egg curry” (will post recipe soon)  and pickle raita..So please try this and let me know what you think.

  10. @AnonymousThe paratha sticks to the board because your stuffing is too wet or your didn't make the dough soft. So

  21. Hi aarathi..when i made paratha the aloo filling is coming out from sides why is it si

  22. @Anonymousdont roll too forcefully. just a gentle roll it good

  23. Aarthi... your explanation & pictorial depictions of the recipes are superb... I always go through your blog whenever i want to try a new recipe or even when i want some innovation in cooking... Keep up the good work... :)

  24. Hi Aarthi , I tried this receipe its tastes great but my slop filling comes out each time ! I think I boiled the potatoes too much as it is too soft ! Is that the reason if yes how many sounds should I boil the potato in cooker?

  25. How many parathas does this recipe make?

  26. Hello aarthi... thank you for the wonderful recipe. All your recipes are wonderful. Can we NOT use maida and simply use wheat flour?
