Parathas (Indian flatbreads) are very popular in India and are typically served for breakfast. However, in the Western world this is served as a side with curries, or as an appetizer. Along with naan, parathas are always a “must have” when I go out for Indian. You can get plain Parathas, but my favorite is Aloo Paratha (“Aloo” means “Potato”).
Crispy, flaky Aloo Paratha are an emblem of soulful Indian home cooking. Almost every home has their own unique recipe and technique for making this delicious North Indian stuffed flatbread at home. Of all the stuffed breads India is famous for, Aloo Paratha is the one loved in every family kitchen.
Indian aloo paratha (Potato stuffed flat bread)
My aloo paratha is nothing fancy, it’s a basic simple recipe which is made in every household in India.
Making stuffing : Just some boiled mashed potatoes, mixed with spices and then stuffed in the dough, which is then rolled and pan-fried. Some people like to grate the potatoes for more texture, I just go the traditional way and mash the potatoes. For more spicy we can add green chilies, coriander leaves, ginger, onion, salt, red chili powder, dry mango powder, roasted cumin powder, and garam masala powder.
Making Dough : Simply mix everything (Whole Wheat flour and salt) together and knead with your hands until a smooth, silky and elastic forms. ( If your dough is still very dry after, add 1-2 tbsp more water* ).
Tips to Make a Good Aloo Paratha
- The key to making a good paratha always lies in kneading a soft dough and then rolling the paratha evenly. Once you get that done, stuff it with your favorite ingredients (spiced potato in this case) and then fry it on a medium-high heat.
- Always make sure that your tawa/griddle on which you will be making the aloo paratha is hot before you put the paratha on it. If it’s just medium hot, the paratha will take time to cook and that will result in a “not so soft” paratha.
For Vegan : In place of butter, use oil to cook paratha.
