Aloo (Potato) Paratha

Aloo stuffed paratha is a failsafe combination for any novice chef. You just can’t go wrong with this simple and easy to make recipe.

  • Boil the potatoes and mash them thoroughly.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the mashed potatoes, garam masala powder, chopped coriander, chopped green chillies/ red chili powder and salt. Mix nicely and make small balls out of it.
  • Prepare the dough balls. Get one ball in hand and give it a concave shape.
  • Stuff the spicy potato ball inside the dough and gently roll into the paratha.
  • Add ghee/clarified butter on the pan and cook your paratha on both sides till it becomes crisp brown.

Gobi Paratha (Cauliflower Paratha)

  • Grate the cauliflower and rinse with water.
  • In a hot pan or kadai, heat oil on medium flame.
  • Add the ginger-garlic paste, chopped onions and salt in it. Cook for a few minutes.
  • When onions turn translucent, add the chopped chillies, grated cauliflower pieces, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and red chilli powder.
  • Cook it for 4-5 minutes under the lid. Finally, garnish it with fresh cilantro.
  • Once it’s cooled down, use it as a paratha stuffing.
