aalu ka parathaaloo paratha recipe | aalu ka paratha | aloo ka paratha | potato paratha with step by step photo and video recipe. paratha or stuffed bread recipes are always popular stuffed bread meal options for most of us. these are generally made with different types of stuffing including the combination of vegetables, lentils and spices. but the most popular paratha recipes are vegetable-based stuffed ones and aalu ka paratha is one of the most popular and tasty paratha recipes from indian cuisine.

well, to begin with, potato paratha can be made in myriad ways and each region and state has its own ways to make it. the most popular one is from the punjabi cuisine or also known as dhaba style way to make the paratha. it basically differs with the stuffing and spices and also the way it is roasted. most of when we prepare it, we end up making a flat without puffing it up. but dhaba style heavily recommends to puff it and apply a lot of butter while frying. in addition, the spice combination is unique and also different types of spices are used along with potato stuffing. this makes it a perfect lip-smacking bread that does not require any sides to go with. having said that a small scoop of pickle or a combination of yoghurt or curd based raita makes it a perfect combo meal.

furthermore, i would also like to add some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the aloo paratha recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend preparing this with just wheat flour. you can also make this recipe with maida or plain flour but it is more healthy with just wheat flour. yet, you can also make it with a combination of wheat and plain flour with a 1:1 ratio. secondly, take extra precaution while preparing the potato or aloo stuffing. it has to be moist but at the same time do not make it watery. you may not be able to stuff it and eventually you may not be able to roll too. lastly, you can apply either ghee, oil or butter while roasting. but apply it only after both the sides have fried. this helps to retain the oil content in the bread and also keeps it fresh.
