You are done with beautiful, delicious and healthy aloo methi parathas.

Kneading flour to a soft pliable dough with just enough water is crucial, to get softer rotis, paratha or chapathis. But a lot of us find difficulty kneading the dough. These aloo parathas are easier than making the regular roti or chapathi, since the dough does not require a long knead when compared to roti dough.

The dough becomes pliable and soft very easily due to the addition of boiled potato. It makes a healthy Lunch for kids and easy for moms to prepare. This does not need much time, as the dough needs no resting.

These aloo methi paratha can be served with a vegetable salad, raita, plain yogurt or chutney as well.

Ingredients (US cup = 240ml )

  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour or Atta
  • 1 potato large, boiled and mashed

  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
  • ¼ tsp ajwain or Green chili chopped or paste
  • ¾ tsp garlic grated, optional
  • 1 Pinch turmeric

  • ¼ tsp garam masala optional

Instructions

Preparation

  • Mix together all the ingredients except oil thoroughly. Pour water little by little and knead it. 
  • Add oil and knead again till the dough becomes pliable. I make the slightly dough sticky and soft. This is a way to keep the paratha soft.
  • Cover & set aside for 5 to 10 mins. Make 4 to 5 balls of equal size.

How to make Aloo Methi Paratha

  • Flour the rolling area and dust some flour on the ball. 
  • Roll with a rolling pin to a thick layer. Do not make them very thin, they tend to become hard. Repeat making all of them.
  • Heat a tawa till smoky hot, transfer the aloo methi paratha to the tawa and adjust the flame to medium high.
  • When the paratha starts to bubble, press gently randomly with a kitchen tissue or wooden spoon to help in puffing. Add a tsp of oil or ghee around the paratha.
  • Flip the parata to the other side and repeat the process till it is fully done.
  • Stack aloo methi paratha and wrap in a kitchen tissue or in a cloth to keep them soft. This way aloo methi paratha remains soft for many hours.
