Aloo/Potato Paratha

Aloo paratha is the staple food in every house in india. This stuffed paratha used to be there in my lunch box once in a week. I love to eat this just by rolling it in my hand with some pickle and curd. Sometimes I just eat it like that. I do not know about any body else but I never get bored with this food. So keep making this once in a while.  So, here’s goes the recipe for my version or to be precise my mom’s version of aloo paratha. I hope you make this and treat yourself.

Aloo/Potato Paratha

Aloo/Potato Paratha


  • 3 cups whole wheat flour, kneaded
  • 2 large potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
  • 2 green chillies, de-vined and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ajwain
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped and minced
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped green coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for greasing paratha


  • Knead dough as you do it to make roti’s and keep it in a fridge for sometime, so that it gets little easier to handle the dough while stuffing.
  • Boil the potatoes in pressure cooker for 2 whistle and let the cooker cool down and then open the lid.
  • Take out the potatoes from the cooker and let it cool down enough for you to handle with hand.
  • Peel it and then mash the same.
  • To the mashed potatoes, add onions, green chillies, red chilli powder, garlic, turmeric powder, ajwain, garam masala powder, salt to taste and coriander leaves.
  • Mix everything well using your hand. Stuffing for aloo paratha is ready.
  • Divide the dough into ball-sized portions and roll between your hands till they are smooth and without cracks.
  • Take this ball sized dough and make a small pouch to fill the stuffing and gently close the pouch by joining all the sides together.
  • Press this stuffed pouch in between your palms to flatten it, so that you can roll it into circle.
  • Heat the griddle and fry the paratha by glazing the oil on the surface of the paratha. Repeat this for the other side of paratha too.
  • The paratha is done when both the side is golden brown or crispy.
  • Serve it with curd and pickles of your choice.
