Aloo Paratha - Flat bread filled with potato curry.

After a lot of thinking finally decided to make aloo paratha for y'days dinner. I was always skeptical to make aloo paratha since my daughter doesn't like to eat potatoes. But I am so glad that my daughter loved the parathas. First thing she said after the dinner is "even though I hate Potatoes these parathas are yummy."

Parathas are flat bread filled with curry. You can make variety of parathas for eg: Muli Paratha(Raddish filling Flat bread), Spinach Paratha, Paneer paratha .


Here is the recipe.

1tsp ginger garlic paste
