Punjabi Aloo Paratha

This is in continuation of our  'Know your Kolkata Food Blogger Event' .. and this time it is Amrita.. who blogs from 'Sweet n Savoury' .While browsing through her blog I stopped at this incredible Aloo Paratha recipe..and immediately decided to give it a try. Received the best compliment from my son, who said, he feels like he is in Delhi, enjoying breakfast at some roadside dhaba. :-) So far, whenever I made aloo Paratha, it is something like everywhere it is roti and thin layer of potato at the centre. But Amrita taught me how to spread the potatoes evenly. Let's see how. 




Ingredients



  • Boiled potatoes - 4
  • Finely chopped onion - 2 tbsp
  • Grated ginger - 1 tbsp.
  • Chopped green chillies - 2
  • Chopped coriander leaves - 2 tbsp.
  • Jeera powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Garam masala 1/4th tsp
  • Amchur powder - 1 tsp
  • Prepared atta dough
  In a bowl mash the boiled potatoes and add onion, ginger, green chillies, coriander leaves, jeera powder, salt, garam masala and amchur powder. Mix them well.



Now take a handful of the atta dough and make a small round roti.Take a handful of the potato mixture (equal to the quantity of atta dough taken ) and put in the center of the roti.



Now cover it with flour on both sides and make a round shaped roti again .




Roll it to a roti once again. Now add a good helping of ghee on the roti and spread it with a spoon.



     Fold the dough from the edges to the center into a square shape .




Now add more flour and roll it into a square paratha.
  


 This double rolling of the dough (first round shape and then square) ensures that the filling has reached all the corners well.
Now put it on a preheated tawa and fry on both sides till done. Serve hot with Dahi / Curd and pickle.
