ALOO PARATHA (POTATO STUFFED FLATBREAD)


Paratha is a popular Indian flat bread using whole wheat flour (atta) or plain flour. You can either prepare them plain or with stuffing. The most common stuffing is using potato.

Care should be taken when adding the water for the dough, do it a little at a time. When rolling make sure you added sufficient flour to avoiding sticking. Since my sons love spicy food, I've added the chili powder for the filling if not you can omit them.
