Aloo Paratha

Aloo paratha with simple carrot-cucumber raita is always my favourite.Here comes that simple recipe with step wise photographs.

Ingredients:

1.Whole wheat flour.........1 cup

2.Salt....2 pinch

3.Oil....2 tbsps

4.Water needed

5.Maida.....2 tbsps(optional)


For stuffing:

1.Boiled potatoes......2

2.Red chilli powder....1/2 tsp

3.Salt

4.Coriander leaves...a few

5.Cumin powder.....1/2 tsp


Procedure:

1.Mix the wheat flour,salt and oil well.Add water mix and knead it like roti batter.Let this rest for 3 hours.


2. Take a bowl,bring in all the stuffing ingredients.Mash and mix well.Keep it aside.




3.Take a small ball of roti  batter and roll it into a small,thick circle.




Place a small ball of the stuffing in the middle,close it and roll it again slowly to a medium size circle.Care should be taken that stuffing should not come out of it.




4.Toast this in a pan,apply oil on both sides.Serve with simple raita.Hope u all like it!!
 Note:I've added maida,because it has got good elasticity,which will prevent the stuffing from coming out while rolling.I always add a 2 tbsp of maida to all stuffed rotis,this makes the rotis stay soft as well :)
