Aloo paratha step-by-step recipe with photos.
Aloo paratha or potato stuffed flatbread. 'Aloo' means potato in Hindi and paratha is an unleavened flatbread made with atta (also called chapati flour or Indian whole wheat flour). This all-time favourite, popular Punjabi breakfast needs no introduction. This is one of the most popular breakfast dishes in northern India. These unleavened flatbreads are made with Indian whole wheat flour or atta and are stuffed with a spicy potato filling.
There are several ways you can prepare the stuffing. In my recipe, I saute the boiled and mashed potatoes with onion and spices. This makes the parathas very delicious. You may choose to skip this step and just mix all the stuffing ingredients together; however, I highly recommend sauteing them first.
Crispy from the outside, soft from with inside with moist and spicy potato filling is definitely a winning dish.
While traditionally this was a breakfast food in Punjab, we love to eat it any time of the day. These parathas taste best when served with Indian pickles and yogurt.
