Aloo Gobi Paratha Recipe - How to make easy aloo gobi paratha

Aloo Gobi Paratha Recipe
Aloo Paratha is quite common in our house as mittu loves it so does hubby and me. When I made aloo gobi masala I got this idea of making paratha with aloo and gobi...Googled around to find that there already existed such a paratha combination...but I made like aloo paratha with slight variations.  Check out more paratha recipes here.
I have regular readers asking for tips to roll stuffed parathas even after posting the stepwise and video so thought of trying this type of rolling which amma usually does for making sweet beetroot chapathi...sticking 2 parathas and then rolling...It is sure easy comparatively so do try and let me know.

Last weekend my uncle and brother were here and I was skeptical about serving the first trial of this paratha but to my surprise both of them gave a thumbs up to it :) And the lil one had it without complaints and said she wants it often...happy mother :))

Aloo Gobi Paratha Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 30 mins | Cooking Time : 15 mins / toast | Makes : 6 parathas
Recipe Category: Main | Recipe Cuisine: North Indian

Wheat Flour - 2 cups + extra for dusting
Oil / Ghee - to toast

For the stuffing:

Potato(Aloo) - 2 medium sized(comes to 1 cup after mashing)

Note : For ginger green chilli paste - take half green chilli and 1/2 inch ginger piece and crush it coarsely.


  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 pliable 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.Aloo Gobi Paratha Recipe - Step1
  2. First add the gobi florets in salted warm water to get rid of the worms then cook it until soft.While the gobi cooks,pressure cook aloo for 4 whistles, peel off the skin.Drain water completely, once both the veggies are cooked, mash it up with a masher.

Now slowly roll them into thin/ thick parathas of your choice... dust flour then and there to avoid sticking.Heat a dosa pan and carefully transfer the paratha, flip to other side, drizzle oil and cook till both the sides has golden spots.Repeat the same with remaining dough.Brush with ghee while serving.How to make kambu koozh - Step5

My Notes:

  • Don't give pressure while rolling.Dust flour then and there when required.
  • Make sure there is no moisture in the veggies else rolling will be tough.
  • Roll it thick or thin as per your preference but make sure the stuffing doesnt ooze out.
  • Adding chat masala powder at the last stage gives a nice tangy twist to the stuffing, I loved it.
  • For making any paratha keep the flame in medium and toast it to get evenly toasted.

  7. Sharmi, the photos are amazing as usuall.... Is there a post on how you make the chappatis/rotis/parathas in round shape? I never get that, and your pics always show your rotis in perfect circle shape. I admit I am a fan, and would love a tutorial on that if you don't mind.
