Aloo paratha recipe with video tutorial- Aloo paratha is a filling and healthy Punjabi meal, cooked and mashed aloo (potatoes) are seasoned and filled inside a paratha (Indian flatbread). It is easy to make and perfect for lunchbox; the best thing about aloo paratha is that you do not need any side dish, just plain curd or mano pickle would be perfect.
In the video; I have also shown how to make the aloo paratha without oil or ghee; though Punjabi's are known to drizzle ghee or butter lavishly on their parathas.
When I make aloo paratha for dinner, what I do is I make them in the afternoon - I half cook them on the tawa and wrap in a cloth, once it is time to serve I reheat again with a bit of ghee or butter for kids and without them for Homey. This way, I save a lot of quality time with Homey and kids.
This recipe has no onion or garlic; but you can add a bit of onion or ginger...or sprinkle some chaat masala.
When you cook the paratha keep the tawa hot and regulate from hot to medium while cooking. you can also press down with a spatula so that the insides are cooked properly. The paratha should have golden or dark borwn spots once it is cooked. In the video I have shown how to cook without oil; for that regulate the flame from high to medium and press down with the spatula, once the paratha is puffed up the inside are well cooked and you can serve hot.
Also, remember to keep the parathas covered in a clean kitchen towel; this helps to keep them soft and also the moisture will be absorbed by the cloth.
