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.


For Dough:
Wheat flour-2 cup
All purpose flour(Maida)-1 cup

I've never made stuffed parathas (only the spinach version) but always wanted to make something like this. It looks like it would be a very tasty addition to my Indian cuisine lineup.

Whenever I stuff n roll d paratha it sticks into d board n then tears off...please help me out...

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

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