Stuffed Potato Parathas

Stuffed Potato Parathas
(Aloo Paratha)
(Indian Flat Breads stuffed with Spicy Potato)

Paratha -or Indian flat bread is made with different types of fillings
Here I have used a spicy potato(aloo) filling, but be my guest and use any left overs such as Kheema (spicy mince-make sure it is cooked till the mixture is dry), or lentils.
I have made Sweet Stuffed Lentils flat bread called Puran Pori (Or Puran Poli-a Maharashtrian name) and they were delicious too!

To make the filling:

Boil 4 large potatoes
Mash them.
In a pan add a little oil and warm up.Add half tsp of turmeric,(optional) a tsp of chilly powder,2 chopped green chillies. 1 tsp of garlic paste, 1 tsp of cumin seeds, 1 tsp of nigella seeds, and a hand full of chopped coriander leaves.
Add the mashed potatoes and let the mixture cool down

Potato Mixture
To make the dough:

2 cups of wholemeal wheat flour
1 tsp of salt
3 tsp of vegetable oil
Water 3/4 cup
Add the oil and salt to the flour and add water to make a smooth soft dough.
Make 6 parts of the dough and fill in the potato filling


 Roll out the stuffed rounds with a rolling pin into flat discs

 Heat a non stick pan on high and put the parathas to fry by brushing a little oil on both sides

Enjoy the parathas hot, with a meal or on their own with some chutney.!
Note: if you have any left over filling freeze it and use it another time
