    • When all the pressure is released from the cooker, open the cooker and take out the potatoes from it and discard the water. Peel and cut the potatoes roughly.
    • Heat 1 tablespoon of ghee or oil in a non-stick pan on medium heat. When the ghee gets hot, add chopped onion and fry the onion till it becomes translucent, stirring continuously.
    • Add boiled and chopped potatoes and fry on a medium flame while stirring continuously for about 2 minutes.
    • Add chopped green chillies, chaat masala, red chili powder, salt, dry ginger powder (sonth powder), garam masala, roasted cumin powder and chopped coriander leaves and mix well. Turn off the gas.
    • Mash the potato mixture thoroughly using a potato masher, making sure there are no potato pieces in the mixture.
    • Potato stuffing is ready. Divide the potato onion stuffing into 8 equal portions.
    • Place a tawa (griddle) on the gas on medium heat for heating.
    • Take the dough and knead it again and divide it into 8 equal parts and make small balls from each of them with both your hands.

    • Place the raw aloo paratha on top of the hot tawa and cook on medium heat.
