Cumin seeds-1 tspn

Green chillies-2 finely chopped

Garam masala-1/2 tspn

Salt- as required

Oil-as required

Water-as required

Coriander leaves-1/4 cup


How to start?


Finely chop the onions, green chillies, and coriander leaves finely. Boil, peel and mash the potatoes. The secret for a neatly shapre aloo paratha is its potatoes being mashed well.


To the mashed potatoes add a little salt, chopped onions, green chillies, coriander leaves, garam masala and cumin seeds. Make small balls and keep aside


Mix wheat flour, salt and required amount of water to make a soft dough. Rub a teaspoon of oil over the dough at last and let it rest for sometime.


Take a lemon size dough, roll it into a small circle. Keep one potato ball and cover all the sides and again roll it into a round shape.


Heat a flat tawa , when it is hot add the paratha and let it cook for a minute. When it starts to get small bubbles turn around and add a teaspoon of ghee or oil around the paratha. Flatten the paratha with a flat spatula on all sides, so that it gets evenly cooked. When the brown spots appear take it out and serve hot with onion yogurt salad or even ketchup.


For extra sleep dose, add a dollop of water on the top of aloo paratha and serve hot.
