Aloo Paratha

This was the conversation we had once I decided to make Ghajar ka Halwa which I have already posted. H said so you decided to make Ghajar ka halwa? Then you should make Aloo ke parathe and kheer. I asked why? What is the combination between these 3? The reply I got was well this is how the hero is welcomed by their moms in olden Hindi cinemas. Now This link didn't strike me. But then I decided to make Aloo Ke parathes also.



Ingredients:

To make the chapathi dough:
Wheat flour - 200 grams
Salt - to taste
Ghee - 1 spoon
Water - 1 cup

To make the Aloo filling:
Aloo (potatoes) - 150 grams
Salt - to taste
Cumin powder - 3 grams
Coriander powder - 5 grams
Garam masala powder - 2 grams
Chilly powder - 5 grams
Aamchoor powder - 2 grams
Ghee - for greasing

Method:

  • Take the wheat flour in a bowl, add salt and mix well.
  • Warm the water, and add this to the above mixture and knead into a dough. Add 1 spoon of ghee and knead it into a soft dough. Cover the dough and keep aside for about 15 minutes.
  • Peel the potatoes and boil the same for about 3 whistles in a pressure cooker.
  • Once the boiled potatoes are cooled, take them in a bowl. We can either grate them or mash with hands.
  • Add all the powders mentioned in the ingredients along with salt and mix well. This mixture also should become similar to the soft dough. 
  • Make them into balls and keep aside.
  • Now take the chapathi dough. Split them equally and also make them into small balls.
  • Take 1 ball of dough and using the rolling pin, roll it to a small circle. We can also use our hands to spread the dough to a small circle without using a rolling pin. Place one big ball of aloo filling in the middle of the rolled paratha.
  • Carefully close all the edges of the circle and remove the extra dough and pat the ball of dough in the middle to form a patti.
  • Make all the other balls into similar pattis and keep aside.
  • Heat the tawa. Grease with a little ghee.
  • Now roll the pattis into 3-4 cm thick parathas. Use little wheat flour to roll, so that the parathas don't stick.
  • Put the rolled paratha in the tawa. Cook well on both sides and grease with little ghee.



Yummy Aloo Parathas are ready!!! Serve with Yoghurt and pickle.
