Aloo Paratha

Aloo Paratha

Hello guys ,Back with my favourite recipe Aloo paratha. My son and me are fond of any kind of roti's and paratha's. Whenever I ask my son , what tiffin he wants he will immediately say chapathi. But he will not take it with sidedish , he will have cheese or butter. So I thought Ill make him stuffed chapathi's so that he can also have the nutrients of vegetables. The easiest Paratha is Aloo paratha. As we will mostly have Potato at home
U jus need to boil the potatoes. I also give this for his lunch because it stays soft for longer time .You know I was not able to make these stuffed paratha's before. One time stuffings will come out another time it will be torn or it will not be in round shape. But I did not leave it. I found out easy ways to make these parata's and now its perfect. Let me share it with you , so that u can also make these paratha's easily.
