India's most loved flatbread: Aloo paratha recipe

It's one of the most popular dishes in Indian households

39w ago

Aloo Paratha is one of the most popular dishes in Indian households. Aloo paratha is extremely popular through the out the west, middle and northern parts of the Indian Peninsula. You can find aloo parathas in 5-star hotels and roadside dhabbas (diners by the highway). The dhabba ones taste the best! However, if you do not have a strong stomach, the dhabba ones are best avoided.

Aloo if you do not know, 'aloo' means potatoes and 'paratha' means flatbread with stuffing. So Aloo Paratha translates into stuffed potato flatbread. By now you would have guessed that it is going to have an exciting mix of spices.

Aloo Paratha can be eaten at any point of the day. From breakfast to dinner and anywhere in between. It is usually served with pickles, yogurt and dhal. Any dhal goes well with aloo paratha. You can even have it the way it is. Just make sure you add dollops of butter on top. Also now you know what you can do with Jeremy's potatoes. I love having it with chai.

  • I love it with Schezwan sauce. Not butter cuz that's too fatty.

    • You have to make your own flatbread... but you can even buy the regular naans from the supermarket and make a potato stuffing and use it....would be as awesome as ever
