Leftover Aaloo Ragda Methi Paratha is a flatbread made using leftover vegetables. Parathas originated in North India and today are made almost in all regions. Paratha is a flatbread made using flour and spices, combined with vegetables of choice.

In this recipe I have used some boiled potatoes, cooked dry white peas (ragda) which were leftover from the earlier day’s chaat and have combined it with some fenugreek leaves which too were leftover after making muthiyas for Surti Undhiyu.

Fenugreek and potatoes is a classic combination, and shouldn’t be avoided and a little extra than what is mentioned in the recipe surely won’t do any harm! Hence if you do not have fresh fenugreek, do use kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves).

If at all there is some leftover daal, it too can be thickened and used in this paratha instead of the ragda. Again you can always freeze the extra parathas just as I did and use them within a few days and you are good to go!

Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously ....is what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste. Started this blog to share a few recipes of mine with all other cooking enthusiasts! Happy cooking to all! 😃

    1. Thanks dear😊 After making Ragda Poori, some ragda is always leftover and can’t be used much in any other way as it’s totally mashed. Potatoes can be easily used up, hence thought of making these parathas and tried incorporating the ragda in it… And it worked!
