Aaloo paratha (Potato-stuffed flatbread) recipe:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon amchur powder (dried mango powder)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or oil for cooking


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt and enough water to form a dough. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. In another mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, cumin powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, amchur powder, garam masala powder, and coriander leaves. Mix well.
  3. Divide the dough into equal portions and shape each one into a ball.
  4. Take one dough ball and roll it out into a circle using a rolling pin.
  5. Place 2 tablespoons of the potato filling in the center of the circle.
  6. Gather the edges of the dough and seal the filling inside.
  7. Roll out the dough again into a circle, ensuring that the filling is evenly distributed.
  8. Heat a griddle or a tawa over medium heat. Once hot, place the paratha on it and cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until it turns golden brown.
  9. Once done, spread ghee or oil on top of the paratha and serve it hot with yogurt or chutney.

Note: You can also cook the paratha using butter or oil, as per your preference.
