I was never fond of aloo paratha since my childhood. I tasted so many version of this famous aloo paratha in restaurants but never seemed to like it, no matter what.
That’s the reason I never tried it until now as I was so confident that I would hate it anyways.
But now after playing with different spices everyday and able to determine the taste before hand, I ultimately gave it a try!!!! & I couldn’t believe I was eating aloo paratha made by Me Myself and loving it!!!
I just used everyday spices without adding ginger, garlic or onions.

How to make aloo ka partha:
For Dough –
- In a mixing bowl add wheat flour, oil and salt. Mix well. Start pouring water little by little at a time and start kneading the dough.
- Knead the dough to a regular chapati dough consistency. Apply a little bit of oil on the kneaded dough to keep it from drying out. Keep the dough aside for 15-20 minutes.
For Filling –
- In a bowl, add mashed potatoes, green chilies, red chilly powder, garam masala powder, chat masala, jeera (cumin) powder, coriander powder, salt, finely chopped coriander leaves and lemon juice. Mix everything well. Check for seasoning.
Actual Paratha Making –
- Take a portion of the dough and roll it into a circle of 4” diameter. Use dry wheat flour while rolling your paratha so that it doesn’t stick to the rolling pin or board.
- Take a spoonful of potato mixture and place the stuffing on the paratha and bringing the edges together in the center, seal it completely.
- Roll out the paratha into a circle of 6” diameter, make sure the stuffing doesn’t come out too much.
- Heat tava (skillet) and roast the paratha using a little ghee until golden brown spots appear on both the sides.
- Aloo Paratha – Potato Stuffed Flat Bread is ready.
- Serve hot with your favorite pickle or raita.
- If potatoes are too soggy with lot of moisture then, on a non stick pan add a teaspoon of oil and put the stuffing mixture and cook on medium flame till all moisture from the potatoes evaporates.
- Make sure the boiled potatoes have completely cooled down before you mash them.
