Everybody loves a good breakfast. And aloo paratha fulfills that. Don't they just perk up a lazy Sunday morning? A spicy potato filling inside, and a soft, sometimes subtly crunchy outside make for a happy breakfast indeed. Especially when it is served with a dollop of butter! Add some fresh curd and homemade mango pickle on the side and your weekend is made.
Tip 1: Make sure you leave the dough to rest before you roll them into parathas and stuff them. Add some oil while preparing the dough. This way you will get a non-sticky dough.
Tip 2: While you are making the filling, grate the potatoes so that it gets evenly mashed. This way you will have a fine texture while stuffing the paratha.
Tip 3: Avoid adding chopped onions in the potato filling. They tend to release water and makes it difficult to roll the paratha.
Tip 4: For a nice flavour, add aamchur or mango powder to the potato stuffing. Additionally you can add kasuri methi or dried fenugreek.
Tip 5: Once the parathas are ready, keep them in a casserole, but once the steam evaporates or else they will soften due to moisture.
