Recipe Notes

  • It is very important to have proper mashed potatoes without any lumps, else it will be difficult to roll the parathas.
  • The dough should me not very soft nor very hard, it has to be somewhere in between so that it
  • You can also shallow fry these aloo parathas, however, I prefer to roast them on a hot Tawa or a griddle.
  • For roasting parathas, you can either use ghee or oil.
  • Use more vegetables like boiled peas, carrots, or beans for making it a healthy veggie version.
