Aloo Paratha

There are various versions of parathas but I feel the Aloo paratha is the king of all parathas, quiet famous in North India. Its a family favorite for also. My MIL makes yummy aloo parathas I have learnt this recipe from her so I dedicate this recipe to my Mother in Law.

Ingredients
For paratha
Wheat flour - 2 cups
salt - to taste
oil - 1 tsp
water - to knead the dough


For stuffing:
potato - 3 to 4 boiled and mashed
green chilli paste - 2 tsp (more if you need spicy)
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
dhaniya jeera powder - 2 tsp
amchur powder - 1 tsp
chopped coriander - handful
salt - to taste

Method:
Take a bowl add the wheat flour along with some salt and start kneading the dough by adding little water. Knead a soft pliable dough. Add a teaspoon of oil knead the dough for 5 min and keep aside covered for 10 minutes.

Prepare the stuffing by combining all the ingredients under stuffing and keep aside.

Now pull out a large lemon sized ball of dough dust the surface with some flour roll to form a approximate 3"  circle now take a spoonful of stuffing and place in the center of the circle and combine all the edges and roll out a regular paratha (be careful the paratha should not be too thin or else the stuffing may come out). Heat a tawa (pan) carefully place the paratha on the tawa turn it in few seconds leave some ghee or oil from the sides and roast to a nice crisp golden brown paratha. Follow the same procedure with the remaining dough. Enjoy with lemon pickle or thandi dahi.
