Tips:

  • It is necessary to have both the dough & filling of same consistency so that it is easier to roll out perfectly shaped paratha.
  • If the cooked potatoes turn soggy, we may sprinkle little wheat flour to absorb the moisture.
  • Nicely roasted cumin seeds make aloo paratha more flavorful; they also aid in digestion and prevent bloating or flatulence after taking potatoes.

Dough making

We just need to mix flour & salt and add water gradually to knead into a soft dough as per the measurement below. Alternately you can use the food processor to make soft dough.

  1. Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
  2. Water – Β½ cup
  3. Salt – ΒΌ tsp

How to prepare aloo paratha:

First we need to stuff spicy potato fillings into the dough as shown below and roll into a thin paratha. Heat a griddle and cook both the sides in medium flame. Serve hot aloo paratha after applying little ghee (or butter) on both the sides.

Tip: I am comfortable to roll out the dough with equal size of filling, if you want you can try with larger filling.

  1. I love allu parotha _ having now lived here in South India for 16 years I of course know how to make them. My recipe is the same as yours, but I will make your dip – sounds delish. Like the way how you explain to Novices how to make this delicious dish. Thanks.

  2. I love, LOVE aloo parathas. But whenever I try it out, it never tastes even half as good as how North Indians make it. Hopefully, your recipe will taste much better. )Thank you for this!!

  3. Yummy, I like the garlic tomato dip… Even aloo paratha looks fab. I think I used to make the mistake of just chopping the onions coarsely. Also do the boiled potatoes have to be mashed before adding to the sautΓ©ed onions??

    1. If you add boiled potatoes that are hot & soft, you can very well mash them with the back of a ladle even while sauteing, please let me know how it turned out for you. Many thanks for stopping by !
