I have been away from posting on the blog for quite sometime. Travelling and busy with the usual chores and sometimes plain lazy. I am back and promise to be regular now- until the next vacation of course ;-).
My husband is not a very big fan of Aloo Parathas and when he does have them, he likes them without onions. I differ! I love them with onions. A friend was coming over for brunch and I decided to make Aloo Parathas with onions for both of us.
4 boiled Potatoes (Aloo)
1 small finely chopped Onion (optional)
Coriander leaves finely chopped
1 or 2 green Chilies (finely chopped)
Salt, Red Chili powder, Garam masala as per taste
3 cups Wheat flour
Salt to taste
Water As needed
Oil for frying parathas
Add salt to wheat flour. Add water and knead to stiff dough. Cover and keep aside.
Mix the ingredients mentioned above for stuffing. Roll out equal sized balls out of the stuffing.
Take some dough and roll out into a medium sized chapatti, spread some oil on this and place ball of potato stuffing in the center of this chapatti. Draw the edges of the chapatti towards the center to cover the filling. Slightly press this and dust it with flour. Roll this with a rolling pin and dust liberally with more flour as you are rolling. When done, pat out the excess flour.
Heat a tava and fry the aloo paratha both sides to crispy and brown. Put some oil over the paratha as you do this.
Serve the stuffed paratha hot with dhania chutney/curd/pickle.
For variations, you can add Kasturi Methi/Chat Masala to the stuffing. It tastes good.
