Direction To Make

Boil Potatoes

  • Boil the potatoes in a pressure cooker for 3 - 4 whistles, first whistle on high heat and then on medium heat. Turn off the gas and allow the cooker to release all the pressure automatically.
  • 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.
  • While the potato is boiling knead the dough with 1 1/4 cup of wheat flour. You can find a detailed recipe for making dough here.

Making Stuffing

  • 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.

Making Aloo Paratha

  • 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.
  • In a bowl take about 1/2 cup dry flour in a bowl for dusting. Take a ball of dough and coat it with dry flour and place it on a rolling board and roll it using a rolling pin and make a circle of about 4 - 5 inches. Place a portion of the potato stuffing in the center and wrap it to cover the stuffing completely.
  • Seal the edges by pressing between your fingers and make a ball shape again. Coat it with dry flour and place it again in the center of the rolling board and roll it again to form a circle of about 6 - 7 inches like roti.
  • Whether the tawa is hot or not, pour a pinch of dry flour over it. If the flour turns brown in the tawa, it is hot.
  • Place the raw aloo paratha on top of the hot tawa and cook on medium heat.
  • When small bubbles appear on the surface of the paratha, flip it to cook from the other side. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of ghee or oil on the sides and shallows fry for about 20 - 30 seconds.
  • Flip again using a spatula and spread another 1/2 teaspoon of ghee or oil on the sides and cook it by pressing with spatula on a medium flame for about 20 - 30 seconds.
  • Flip again and cook with press it every 20 - 30 seconds until the paratha is well cooked and golden brown spots appear on both sides.
  • Aloo Paratha is ready. Serve with butter or curd.
