Aloo Paratha Recipe - How to make aloo paratha - Easy Aloo Paratha

Aloo Paratha Recipe
I tried Aloo paratha only recently, all these days I felt it was hard enough to make. And with stuffing inside I thought I would surely mess it up....But finally had the guts to try it out and now am confident enough to make it again.Have updated with steps and video too...

Aloo paratha with Boondi Raita is a great combo....do try this for yourself and enjoy!
How to make Aloo Paratha

Aloo Paratha Recipe

Preparation Time:10 minutes | Cooking Time : 30 mins | Serves:2
Recipe Category: Main | Recipe Cuisine: North Indian

For the chapathi dough:

Wheat flour - 1 cup
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Water - as required

For the aloo stuffing:

Potatoes - 2 large
Coriander leaves -2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - a generous pinch
Jeera - 1 tsp / Ajwain (Omam) - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste

Method:

  1. In a wide mixing bowl add wheat flour, salt and first give a quick mix for salt to be even. Then add water( you can even use the drained radish water)little by little, gather to form a soft pilable dough.Once it is gathered to a mass add 1/2 tsp oil and knead it once.The dough should not be too tight or too loose, it should be non sticky at this stage.Allow it to rest for a while until we prepare the stuffing.How to make Aloo Paratha - Step1
  2. Cut potatoes into half and pressure cook them until soft for 5-6 whistles. Peel of the skin, mash it well,add turmeric powder and mix well with your hands,Set aside.Heat oil in a pan add ajwain let it splutter.How to make Aloo Paratha - Step2
  3. Then add mashed potatoes,saute for 2mins then add required salt and give a quick stir. Finally add chopped coriander leaves, give a quick stir and switch it off.How to make Aloo Paratha - Step3
  4. Make small balls with the mixture and keep aside.Mix wheat flour with water to form a soft pilable dough. Now divide the chapathi dough into equal parts and roll into smooth balls bigger than the aloo balls. Flour the surface and roll the chappathi dough slightly thicker.Then place the aloo ballin the center and gather the dough from all sides.How to make Aloo Paratha - Step4
  5. Seal it well, flip to other side and start rolling to a slightly thinner paratha. Dust flour when needed.Heat dosa tawa and carefully place the parathas, drizzle oil and cook until the parathas turn golden brown.How to make Aloo Paratha - Step5
Brush it with ghee while serving and serve it hot!
Aloo Paratha - Aloo Parantha

My Notes:

  • After stuffing the aloo balls and sealing it up, you can slightly flatten it with your palms before rolling.
  • You can also add red chilli powder along with turmeric powder
  • You can even apply ghee for toasting the parathas.
  • I make my parathas a bit thinner, Roll it thin or slightly thick as per your liking. It goes well with any curd based raita either onion raita or pickle raita.

  38. I made this today!!! I couldn't believe how easy they were! I always thought they'd be impossible. I ended up having waaaaay more potato mix than the bread! The bread only made three parathas....but it took 2 seconds to mix, so i can make more later and store the potato filling.

    Thanks for making it a 1+ 1 = 2 recipe. Simple. :)

  47. Hi Sharmi
    Thanks for your detailed recipe.After a long time I tried stuffed paratha.I made perfect 7 parathas of 8 inch diameter for dinner today without any tear..Hurray!
    I want to add one more tip but I don't know why and how it works,a but it sure does.
    After stuffing the aloo ball in the dough ball(check for cracks), leave it for 30 to 45 minutes and then roll into parathas.It sure is lot more easier and mess free.

  48. Thank you ,In fact i was wondering how they make
