Parathas.. is one of the delicious shallow fried stuffed bread.
Parathas can be made in various ways with different stuffings. Parathas can be eaten as a breakfast or as tea-time (tiffin) snack.
There are many ways of making aloo (potatoes) stuffing.
The one which I’m sharing here is very easy to prepare 😊
For potato stuffing…
- Boiled Potatoes – 2
- Green chillies – 1
- Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
- Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp
- Cumin/jeera powder – 1/2 tsp
- Garam masala powder – 1/2 tsp
- Chaat masala powder – 1/2 tsp
- Coriander leaves – Finely chopped
- Lemon juice
- Salt to taste
For parata dough…
- Whole wheat flour – 2 cup
- Oil/ghee – 5 to 6 tsp
For stuffing: peel the skin of boiled potatoes. mash them nicely with no lumps then add all the ingredients that shown in stuffing above and mix them well.
For kneading dough: In a bowl add whole wheat flour, make a well in the centre add salt, oil and little water . Bring the mixture together and knead into smooth soft dough. Greez oil/ghee on top of the dough and cover it. Let it to rest for 30 mins.
While the dough rest, take the aloo stuffings and make small balls from it.
Now take dough and make small balls from it and roll into 3-5 diameter circle using rolling pin and board.
Now put one aloo mixture ball in the centre, gather the edges and cover it. Flatten it using your hands . Now dip that in dry wheat flour and roll into 6 to 7 diameter round shape .
Now heat the pan/tawa. Once it is hot place the rolled parathas and fry for few seconds, flip it and add some oil or ghee. Fry other side as well.
Serve hot parathas with chilled yoghurt/dahi and pickle. And of course add butter on top of the hot parathas.
