Aloo paratha

Aloo paratha is very popular traditional Indian breakfast, especially in North India, crispy from outside and inside is very soft. Filling is a blend of mainly potato and Indian spices. There are many ways of making potato stuffing, boil the potato first then add spices, onion. But i made paratha with leftover potato sabzi.(no gravy) and minimal oil

For paratha you need dough that is also very easy to make you need aata (flour) and water.
knead for 2-3 minutes and done. A while back i did a video on youtube where i used boiled potatoes, check link in the bottom of post.

Aloo Paratha Recipe 


For Filling

  • Potato mashed (leftover) - 1 cup
  • oil - 1 tablespoon

For Dough

  • Wheat flour - 1 1/2 cup
  • Water - 3/4 cup
  •  Oil - 1 tsp

  1. First add flour, in a bowl, now gradually add water and mix with your hands. Add little more water knead until its smooth, for about 2-3 minutes. once its together apply little oil. keep it on side for 10 minutes.
  2. Make small balls out of the dough, take one ball roll it into approx. 4" diameter circle. place 1/4 cup potato filling in that and gather the edges of dough and pinch it in center to close.
  3. Dust in flour and flatten with hands, use a rolling pin to roll it out. don't press too hard otherwise filling can come out.
  4. Heat an oiled girdle on medium heat. place one paratha, cook for about 1 minute. then using spatula see if it is done from other side (brown spots) then flip over. Apply little oil. cook from other side. for about same time.
  5. When both sides done it is ready place in plate and serve with yogurt, butter or any gravy dish.

  • If you don't have leftover potato boil it first.
