- Add green chillies, coriander leaves, coriander powder, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, dry mango powder, cumin powder and salt. Mix well and keep aside the stuffing
- Divide the dough into 4 equal size balls (or as required). Dust it with wheat flour and roll it with a rolling-pin to make a small round
- Place around 1.5 – 2 tbsp of the stuffing in the centre and bring the edges together to make a round stuffed ball
- Dust the ball and start rolling to make a normal size paratha. If required dust it again in between rolling and make sure it doesn’t break
- Meanwhile heat a tawa and place the paratha on it. When you start getting the brown spots spread some ghee or oil and fry it from both the sides until crisp and brown (as in the picture)
- Your Aloo Paratha is ready. Serve hot with curd, butter, tea, coffee or pickle and enjoy!!!
