I am sure Alu Paratha is not new to most of you. This recipe was lying in my drafts for a really long time not getting due attention and so here I am getting ready to post it. Making Alu paratha is a very tricky process as many people complain that the filling keeps oozing out as the paratha is being rolled out. Been there done that..I found that mashing the potato well solves part of the problem. But I should say it definitely requires some practice to get it right. Don't you all experts out there think so?

Alu Paratha

Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 2 cups
Salt as per taste
Water to knead the dough

For the filling -

Potatoes 2 cup
Onions chopped 1/2 cup
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp (or as per taste)
Mirchi Powder 1/2 tsp (or as per taste)
Salt as per taste

Oil for spraying on parathas

Method Of Preparation - 

Knead the chapati dough with the whole wheat flour and salt with as much water as needed. Keep it covered for about 10-15 min.

Meanwhile, saute the chopped onions in a heated sauce pan (With a little oil though!). Boil and mash the potatoes and mix it in.

Add salt, mirchi powder, garam masala to the above mixture. Adjust the spices and salt as per taste.

Make equal portions of the dough. Roll out small chapatis and fill in a spoonful of the potato  mixture, close the edges and roll out the parathas taking care that the mixture doesn't fall out. Shallow fry in a heated pan until both the sides are done. Repeat the procedure for all the parathas.

Enjoy with Yogurt or any gravy curries!
