If you are planning to make aloo paratha for breakfast tomorrow, all you need is some basic ingredients and a few simple steps. Here is a step-by-step guide to making the perfect aloo paratha.
STEP 1: PREPARE THE DOUGH
Start by preparing the dough. Take two cups of wheat flour, add a pinch of salt and two tablespoons of oil. Knead the dough for about five minutes until it becomes smooth and pliable. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for about fifteen minutes.
STEP 2: PREPARE THE FILLING
Next, prepare the filling for the parathas. Take two boiled potatoes, mash them and add some salt, chili powder, garam masala and chopped coriander. Mix all the ingredients together and set aside.
STEP 3: CUT DOUGH INTO SMALL BALLS
Now, take a portion of the dough and roll it into a thin circle. Place the filling in the center of the circle and fold the edges to form a pocket.
STEP 4: COOK YOUR PARATHA
Heat a non-stick pan and place the paratha on it. Cook it on both sides until it turns golden brown. Serve hot with yogurt and pickle.
These simple steps will help you make the perfect aloo paratha. You can also experiment with the filling and add your favorite vegetables or spices to make it more flavourful.
