Aloo Paratha / Stuffed Aloo Paratha

March 11, 2016 Motions and Emotions 12 Comments

Aloo Paratha is a popular recipe from Northern part of India and now famous everywhere. Everytime I mention one thing that I like the positive effects of globalization! Our food is getting globalized and we are fortunate to taste varieties of cuisine without travelling worldwide. As like Punjabi's, we Bengali's have an affection towards aloo or potato! We cannot think a single day without aloo. In our day-to-day recipes we add aloo along with other vegetables.These days we are trying to restrict our intakes of potato. But that doesn't mean we are spending one or two single day without potato. We are just using less quantity than before.

I was wondering how come aloo paratha did not appear in my blog yet! Just like sattu paratha I often prepare aloo paratha as it is totally hassle free.The best part of making stuffed paratha is you do not need any side dish. A dollop of pickle or some crunchy salad or just a bowl of curd is enough to complement it. Here I am sharing how to make aloo paratha or aloo ka paratha at your home kitchen:
