Aloo Paratha Recipe - How To Make Aloo Paratha - Punjabi Aloo Paratha Recipe:

Aloo Paratha is a popular stuffed paratha recipe from Punjabi cuisine. I have never seen a menu card without Aloo Paratha listed in Punjabi Dhaba restaurants. This Punjabi aloo paratha recipe is share to give you a super soft paratha with soft aloo stuffing.

Aloo Paratha is simple to make and requires no side dish. So, I choose aloo paratha for dinner on lazy days. Tomato sauce, curd or boondi raitha are best accompaniments for aloo paratha. I boil potatoes and take the wheat flour to the living room. I leisurely watch television or listen to music while preparing the dough. Once the potato is cooked, it is quite easy to prepare the stuffing. So, I again go back to living room and continue preparing the paratha. Since I do not prepare side dish for it, I feel that it is one of the easiest menu for dinner.

About the Aloo Stuffing:

I have given a very simple and basic recipe for preparing the aloo stuffing. You can add any other ingredients of your choice if you feel they can enhance the flavor of the stuff. I have added carrom seeds or ajwain(omam in tamil) and chat masala powder for additional flavors. Though both are optional ingredients, they give nice taste and additional flavor. If you do not like the taste of ajwain, you can ignore it. Some kids might not like it. Since Ajwain has good medicinal properties, you can consider crushing the seeds and add it. Chat masala powder gives a super twist to the taste. So, try not to miss adding it if you have it in stock.

Serving and side dish suggestion: Serve it hot. As I said, tomato sauce, curd or boondi raitha are the best accompaniments. White butter is also usually served along with aloo paratha in Punjab.
