Aloo Parathas are one of my family's favorite dishes. We can serve Aloo Parathas for breakfast or dinner or can also pack in our lunch boxes. Aloo parathas need no side dishes or gravy and can be served as it is or with Onion raita. You can make these yummy parathas in just 45 minutes.


For the dough

2 cups wheat flour
¼ tsp salt
Water as required
1 tsp oil

For the stuffing

3 tsp oil
4 large potatoes, cut into half
½ tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp red chilli powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
¼ tsp salt
4 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves


Heat water in a pan, add potatoes and salt and boil till the potatoes are cooked. Once done, drain the excess water, remove the skin of the potatoes and mash well with a fork or masher. Then take a bowl, add flour, salt and water and knead to form soft but firm dough. Add oil and knead again for a few minutes. Close a lid and set aside.

Then heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and allow it to sputter. Then add the mashed potatoes, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt and coriander leaves. Stir and cook till all the ingredients are mixed well. Switch off the gas and allow it to cool. Then divide it into 8 equal portions and set aside.

Now take the dough and divide this also into 8 equal balls. Take 1 ball, roll into a small circle and place one portion of the potato mixture on it. Carefully cover it with the dough and pinch off the excess. Press gently to form a patti and roll it to form a circle of uniform thickness. Then transfer this to a hot tava and cook on both the sides. Apply butter or oil and cook till done. In the same way make all parathas. Serve hot. (This recipe makes 8 parathas.)
