Alu Paratha


When I was doing my engineering, there was a “Mandar mess” near our hostel. They used to prepare very delicious parathas. That is the place where I became a fan of parathas. I used to keenly observe them preparing it. I tried many times, after some failures, learnt how to cook alu paratha. Now I am good at making them. This is one of my many versions of alu paratha.

Ingredients:
2 potatoes
5-6 stems coriander leaves
1 tea spn ginger-garlic paste(use fresh)
2-3 green chillies
2-3 cups wheat flour
2 tbl spn oil and Ghee each
Salt

Method:
Add water, salt to wheat flour. Make dough(similar to chapathi dough). Apply oil to the dough and keep for around 1hr.

Cook the potatoes and mash. Make paste of coriander leaves and green chillies. Add this to potatoes. Add ginger-garlic paste and salt.

Take a small ball of dough, spread it like a puri with hand, take a ball(ping pong ball sized) of potato stuffing, keep it on the puri and close the puri over stuffing.

Make paratha applying wheat flour.

Fry paratha on tava, apply ghee on both sides. Serve hot.

Serves : 3
Preparation time : 30min
