Aloo paratha or stuffed Indian flatbread whatever we call it; it’s an all-rounder and can be eaten at any time of the day. Wheat dough is rolled out in small circles, stuffed with tasty potato mixture, sealed around the corners and toasted to perfection. Just the thought of it makes my mouth water.
I made this Aloo Paratha on a vrat/fast day so had to make a pass on adding onions to the potato mixture but add chopped onions to this and it will make a huge difference. I prefer my stuffing to be cooked before being stuffed into the paratha but you can choose to leave that out and just add spices to mashed potatoes, mix and you are good to go – stuffing is ready.
I cook my parathas in oil but traditionally till date Punjabi aloo parathas are cooked in ghee/ clarified butter and they taste the BEST!! For my kiddos they are cooked in ghee because I believe every kid loves aloo ka parathas- so let them enjoy the Indian classic the traditional way like we did!!
