  • Onion, finely chopped
  • Green chilies, finely chopped
  • fresh coriander chopped
  • Cumin seeds
  • Red chili powder
  • Gram masala
  • Amchur powder or lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Ghee or oil

Measurements

For the dough:

  • Wheat flour - 2 whole cups
  • Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Water as needed

For the potato filling:

  • Potatoes, boiled and mashed - 3 medium-sized
  • Onion, finely chopped - 1 small onion
  • Green chilies, finely chopped - 2
  • fresh coriander chopped - 2 tablespoons
  • Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
  • Red chili powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Gram masala - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Amchur powder or lemon juice - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt to taste
  • Ghee or oil for cooking

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and salt. Gradually add water and knead to form a smooth dough. Cover and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, chopped onions, green chilies, coriander, cumin seeds, red chili powder, garam masala, amchur powder (or lemon juice), and salt. Mix well to ensure all the spices are evenly distributed.
  • Divide the dough into small equal-sized balls. Take one ball and roll it out into a small disc on a lightly floured surface.
  • Place a spoonful of the potato filling in the center of the disc. Gather the edges of the disc towards the center to cover the filling and form a stuffed ball.
  • Flatten the stuffed ball and roll it out gently into a circular paratha, about 6-7 inches in diameter. Dust with flour as needed to prevent sticking.
  • Heat a tawa (flat griddle) or a non-stick pan over medium heat. Place the rolled paratha on the heated surface.
  • Cook for about 1-2 minutes until you see small bubbles forming on the surface. Flip the paratha and spread a teaspoon of ghee or oil on the cooked side.
  • Cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes until golden brown spots appear. Press the edges gently with a spatula to ensure even cooking.
  • Remove the cooked paratha from the pan and place it on a plate. Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls and potato filling.
  • Serve the hot Aloo Paratha with yogurt, pickle, or any chutney of your choice
