ALOO PARATHA

        Some dishes we love to eat and some dishes though we do not like to eat, we make for our family members, some dishes we love to make also. Aloo paratha, is the one which i  always love to make(of course to eat),and thankfully my hubby and kids love this. this time i like to share my own version of making this paratha, which i learnt from my friend long time back.

  • Heat a tawa,and put the rolled parathas on the tawa.
  • When it is done on oneside, flip it over.
  • When it is done,you will get nice golden colur on the outer layer),add a drop of oil to it.(I normally don’t add)
  • If you  want you can add  ghee/ butter also.

  • Serve hot with pickle or curd.

NOTE:
  1. You can replace sambhar powder with finely chopped green chillies.
  2. You can also add scrambled paneer to the aloo mixture for stuffing.
  3. If you are adding oil to parathas, add after they are completely cooked on both sides.
  4. Do not make the paratha,when the mixture is hot, the parathas will not come out nicely.
