Aloo Paratha

First, to confess, I’m a pure South Indian but a hardcore lover of parathas. I would not say this is the authentic way of making Aloo Paratha. This is my way to make and enjoy the paratha. From my child hood I love rotis and parathas. Same way my daughter too loves it. (Happy to passed the gene) There are lots of roti varieties in this space like Carrot ChapathiSpinach ChapathiCilantro Chapathi. To add to that list I made Aloo Paratha . I made this long time ago but now came the time to publish it. That is because the theme of our FB group Healthy Wellthy Group this time is Parathas.


When I say Aloo Paratha , there are some funny incidents co related to it.In this year vacation, when we went to India, we and our husband’s sister family went to Delhi & Agra for a 4 day trip. We thought that getting South Indian food should not be that difficult. But on those 4 days we were able to find only rotis and parathas. We got some good Aloo Parathas in the hotel we stayed.For me it was ok,but for them it was difficult for not getting rice,Idli or dosa. Finally at end of our trip we found our favorite Saravana Bavan and had some good Idli,Dosa ,Vada. That was one good , funny trip as none among the ten except me know Hindi. Our driver knows only Hindi and we couldn’t communicate to him what we want. We finished the trip with my broken Hindi. But at last everyone were happy to see the beauty of the monuments there.

How did I make Aloo Paratha

As I said, this is my version of Aloo Paratha. Made the roti dough as I normally would do with Whole Wheat Flour.  Made the stuffing with Boiled Potatoes, and some spices. Made an equal size ball of dough and the stuffing. Rolled the dough, then stuffed the potato mix. Cover it and roll it. Cook in ghee or butter and smear some butter while it is still hot. Serve along with some thick yogurt or pickle like a true North Indian or with some gravy like I do.

  1. Lovely clicks dear 🙂 I know what you mean when our basic cuisine is more south Indian than the more global favorite north Indian cuisine! Although I love my parathas, north Indian curries and Punjabi samosas, hot steaming idlis, crispy dosaw, spicy sambhar and a bowl of thayir sadam can melt me totally!!! Awesome share!
