Recipe for Aloo Paratha

(Ref: RCP203)




Aloo Paratha is Indian Flat Bread with Spicy Potatoes stuffing. This is just the thing for a weekend brunch! It's an absolute delectable dish when served with Peppery Pickle and Plain Yogurt. Here goes the procedure...

Serves:

4

Preparation Time:

20-minutes.

Cooking Time:

10-minutes

Ingredients:

For the dough:
 
 Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup 
 Water - ½ cup 
 Pinch of Salt
 
 
For the stuffing:
 
 Medium sized Potatoes - 2 
 Cumin Seeds - ½ tsp 
 Finely chopped Green Chillies - 1 
 Finely chopped Cilantro (Coriander Leaves) - 2 tbsp 
 Garam Masala - ½ tsp 
 
You will also need:
 
 Whole Wheat Flour for rolling and Oil to cook. 

Method:

Dough:

• Place the Flour, Salt in a large mixing bowl. Add little Water at a time and mix well to make a soft dough (generally it's mixed by hand).

• Knead the dough well and keep it covered for at least 10-minutes.

Stuffing:

• Cut the Potatoes into 4 parts and boil in water till they are tender.

• Once done, let it cool and then remove their skin and mash them.

• To this add the Green Chillies, Cilantro, Cumin Seeds, Garam Masala and mix well.

Making of Paratha:

• Divide the dough and Potato mixture into equal parts (this could be just your fist size)

• Roll the dough into 3 inch diameter circles, and then place the Potato balls in the centre. Seal this by pulling the edges of the rolled dough together covering the filling.

• Keep this aside for about 3-minutes before you start rolling them.

• Meanwhile heat the skillet/frying pan/tawa on medium high heat.

• Now start rolling the stuffed patties - first roll them in dry wheat flour, keep the sealed side on the top and slightly press it.

• Start rolling with a rolling pin lightly to about 6 inch circles. Whenever you feel that the dough is sticking to the rolling pin, sprinkle some dry wheat flour on both sides of the Paratha.

• Once rolling is done, place the Paratha over the hot skillet. Within few seconds you will see the colour changes and also slightly puff in various places.

• Now flip the Paratha. You will see some golden-brown spots on the topside. After few seconds, spread 1 spoon of Oil on the paratha and flip it again. Lightly press the puffed areas with a flat spatula.

• Flip again and press with the spatula making sure that the Paratha is golden-brown on both sides.

• Cool this Paratha on a wire rack or a big thali/plate so that they don't get soggy.

Enjoy hot Aloo Parathas with a dollop of butter and tantalising Pickle + Yogurt!!!

Note: Parathas can be kept outside for up to 2 days in a closed container and refrigerated for 4-5 days. They can also be wrapped in an aluminium foil and freezed up to a month - when consuming reheat on a skillet.
