Aloo Paratha(Potato filled flat bread)

Preparing dinner is something which I like very much as it would be a planned routine task. I keep thinking about that from afternoon itself so that I get some good ideas in mind and would love to try those for dinner. Aloo paratha is one such receipe ideal for dinner which can be served with just a cup of dahi(curd).


Ingredients:

1. Boiled potatoes - 2
2. Onion - 1(finely chopped)
3. Coriander leaves - Finely chopped)
4. Green chillies - 2(chopped)
5. Ginger - small piece(grated)
6. Garam masala - 1 tsp
7. chilli powder - 1 tsp
8. Salt - to taste
9. Butter - to taste
10. oil - to make bread(paratha)



Direction:

1. For the flat bread(to cover potatoes) make dough out of whole-wheat flour(atta) as you make for normal roti's
2. Filling/Stuffing preparation):Mash the boiled potatoes and add onion, coriander leaves, green chillies, ginger, garam masala, chilli powder and salt, mix them uniformly.
3. Now divide the dough in to small balls and roll them between your hands uniformly so that there is no crack on them.
4. Flour your rolling board/surface and roll the ball to about 3-4" circle. Now add the filling in the middle of the circle and slightly lift the edges and close them to form closed pouch.
5. Roll them again between your hands to form circle and make sure the filling does not ooze out.
6. Now roll the filled ball in to a bigger circle dont worry if small amount of filling oozes form it.
7. Heat the pan with little oil and now trafer the rolled paratha in it. Do not flip them unless you find the bubble rising up. Once you find the bubble flip it to other side add little oil. Keep flipping them on both sides for every 25 secs until you get the golden brown color.
8. Serve them hot with curd, onion raita, pickles or any gravy.
