Aloo Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Paratha Recipe


Aloo Paratha 1

Aloo Paratha is an Indian flat whaet bread stuffed with the curry made of potato and Onion. This recipe basically originated from North India and has become a very common these days. Whenever I get bored of plain rotis,I used to make stuffed paratha. I feel this to be a very filling diet. Aloo Parathas can be served with raitha, Kuruma, Tomato Ketchup.
