Aloo Paratha/ Stuffed Potato Roti ~ A Vegan special

One of my favorite dishes of all time is Aloo Paratha, tell me who doesn't like potatoes? I really wonder why all the good and tasty foods are not good for health... seriously Potatoes taste good and high in carbs and the best for of eating them is boiled/ mashed, but since my love of potatoes is endless, I started loving these stuffed rotis with potato mash which mum used to make for me. Miss those care-free days but now after marriage guess who loves it? my husband indeed... Though there are many differences among us like most couples, we have one distinct similarity and that is the love for FOOD ;-)


This recipe is once I adapted to our taste and we love to have it with curd and pickle. It is quite filling hence stick to small portions or if you are not calorie conscious and are gifted with a great physique come on tell me what needs to stop you? BINGE

  • Once the potatoes are soft discard the water and mash it. Don't over do it since you need some lumps

  • take the dough and mend it for 3 minutes and make thick rolls (approx double the size of the usual chappathi/roti rolls) now start to roll then when they are half-inch thick add the cooled potato masala around 1 spoon or lesser and fold the sides of the dough and form a ball
  • no start rolling them slowly and softly and make them flat
  • in a hot non-stick pan add oil and slide the roti into it and let it cook for 30 seconds and then flip them over and add oil, cook the other side
