Aloo Paratha

I made this paratha long back but totally forgot to post then. Am sure there are lot many ways to make stuffing as per taste , I find easy with the regular stuffing as i din't hv much time that day. U may also green peas in ur stuffing.It's totally ur choice. Njoy !!!

Ingredients :

Whole Wheat flour /Atta -- 2 cups
Ghee -- 1 spoon
Oil -- as reqd -- to knead
Warm water -- as reqd to form a soft dough
Salt -- to taste

For the stuffing :

Potato -- boiled -- 4 no. (medium)
Red chilli powder -- 1/4 tsp
Salt -- to taste
Green chili --1 chopped
Coriander leaves -- 2 tbsp
Garam masala -- a pinch
Ajwain -- a pinch

Method :

Take a mixing bowl and add the flour ,ghee (melt the ghee b4 u add it ) and mix it well. Add the salt as well and mix. Add the warm water little by little and make a soft dough but not sticky. Rest the dough for 10 minutes after covering it. By the time, make the stuffing. Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes and let it cool. Peel the skin and mash the potatoes. Add salt,red chilli powder,coriander leaves,ajwain ,garam masala,green chilli, and mix everything well together using a spatula and divide them into equal balls.

Start kneading the dough for 4 to 5 minutes applying oil in between to make it soft and flaky.. Divide them equally into small balls. Actually the stuffing ball should be bigger in size when compared to the paratha dough balls so that u get more stuffing n each and evry bite...

Grease the flour or working area with wheat flour and take a paratha ball and pat it . Now place the stuffing ball in the center and close it from all the sides. Now again pat it and dust both the sides with little bit of flour and make a paratha which is 1/4 " thickness and 5 to 6 in circle.. Heat a griddle and cook the paratha by drizzling some oil on the sides and cook until it turns golden on both sides..

Happy eating guys !!!
