AALOO PARATHA (INDIAN FLATBREAD WITH A DELICIOUS POTATO STUFFING)

Aaloo Parathas are basically whole wheat flatbreads stuffed with a delicious potato filling and are one of the most favourite type of breakfast dish and a North Indian delicacy! Today we can find numerous types of parathas with different stuffings. But Aaloo Paratha is a traditional dish where you might find certain differences in the spices and ingredients used alongwith the aaloo/potato.

Instead of using only potato for the stuffing, I have added some aromatic kasuri methi to it. This, alongwith the aamchur and garam masala, gives the parathas a unique flavour. Though fresh methi can be added to the same, I prefer using the kasuri methi as it imparts a strong, unique and delicious flavour to the paratha.
