QUICK AALOO PARATHA (POTATO FLATBREAD)

Aaloo Paratha is a delicious breakfast dish, from North India, especially from Punjab. It is a delicious combination of potatoes, flour and some aromatic spice powders. Today, this dish too, like some other Indian regional dishes has become popular across the whole of India.

Generally a delicious potato mixture is stuffed into balls of kneaded flour and rolled into a paratha. But, here I have presented a recipe where there is no aaloo stuffing. Instead all ingredients are just kneaded together and then rolled into parathas.

This is a very easy and quick method of making aaloo parathas and is very useful in today’s busy and fast life! If you like this recipe then do give a try to the following quick and easy recipes too…….
