BM #92 Day 1 - 

This paratha is a very filling one with the flavor of your favorite pickle and a spicy potato filling.

This recipe marks the beginning of the 26 - day Mega BM, which I am participating with a few of my blogger friends. This month it is all either Indian breads (dosa/pancake type), Indian flatbreads (Paratha/Roti/ Naan/Kulcha type), or International Flatbreads. But the twist is that they all should be alphabetically arranged. So today it is A for Achari Aloo Paratha, tomorrow it is B for ...

This paratha has been very popular at home as my husband and older one are fond of spicy parathas. 

Go through the recipe and try it out while I get ready for tomorrow's post.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 cup
Salt as needed
Oil 1 tsp + more to shallow fry
Water as needed to knead a soft dough
For the Filling - 
Aloo/Potatoes peeled, boiled and mashed 1 cup
Salt, Red Chili powder, Amchur Powder, Garam Masala as needed
Coriander seeds coarsely crushed 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds coarsely crushed 1/4 tsp
Ajwain/ Vaamu coarsely crushed 1/2 tsp
Green Chili finely chopped 1 tsp (or as needed)
Coriander leaves finely chopped 2 Tbsp
*Pickle of your choice 2 tsp or more [I used Mango Ginger Pickle - store bought]

*Make sure there are no chunky pieces in the pickle.

  Method Of Preparation -

To Prepare the filling
Mix all the ingredients listed under the Filling, except the pickle and knead well to make sure the flavors are blended in.

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

Make 5-6 equal portions of the dough. 

Roll out small chapatis, apply the pickle as much as preferred 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 on a griddle/tawa until both the sides are done spraying as much oil as needed. Repeat the procedure for all the parathas.

Enjoy with Yogurt or any gravy curries.
