Aloo Paratha


For the potato filling
2 mediums big or 3 sized potatoes (boiled)
2 green chillies (finely diced)
1 clove of garlic (finely diced)
1 teaspoon ginger (finely diced)
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 cup coriander leaves (chopped)
salt to taste
For the dough
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cooking oil


Now mash the boiled potatoes and mix all the ingredients for the potato filling and mix well. Keep aside
Mix the salt with the wheat flour. Then add some water to knead it into a smooth dough. If you are doing this for the first time, add less water to make the dough a little firmer. It helps in managing the dough while rolling it. Add oil to the dough and knead well. Keep aside for 10-15 mins to let the dough set in.
Now, divide the dough into small balls (about the size of a lemon). Roll the first ball into a small circle. Place a lemon sized potato mixture ball in the center of the rolled dough. Seal the potato mixture into the dough by pulling together the edges of the dough to form a dumpling. Lightly press it all together to ensure the potato mixture does not come out
Roll this ball into a flat bread adding pressure from the center to the sides. Heat a frying pan. Keep on medium heat. Put the flat bread on the pan. Lightly grease it with butter. Turn on the other side once one side is cooked. now lightly grease the other side with butter. Once both sides are properly cooked, paratha is ready!
