Recipe for Aloo Paratha / Potato stuffed Indian Bread

I know its a simple one, but at one point in my life I had no idea how to prepare this. I guess some people are definitely there who does not know how to make it, yet crave for it every moment. So this recipe is for these souls...Enjoy the butter topped aloo paratha...


  • Potatoes: 4 medium sized 
  • Whole wheat flour/atta: 3 cups 
  • Green chillies finely chopped: 3 
  • Red chilli powder: 1 teaspoon 
  • Cumin powder: 1 teaspoon 
  • Coriander chopped(optional) : 1 tbsp 
  • Amchur powder: 1 teaspoon 
  • Ghee: 2 tbsp 
  • Oil : 1-2 tbsp 
  • Salt 
  • Water 
  • Butter for garnishing 


  1.  Boil the potatoes and peel them. 
  2. Chop the potatoes now, and add chopped green chillies,amchur powder,red chilli powder,salt and cumin powder. 
  3. Mash the potatoes and the spices together and form equal sized balls(a little smaller than the dough balls described in the next step). Your stuffing is ready. Make sure that there are no lumps. 
  4. Knead whole wheat flour(atta) with salt,water and 1 tbsp of ghee/oil to make it a semi-soft dough and make equal sized balls. 
  5. Take a piece of dough and roll out into a circle of say 4-5" diameter. 
  6. Put a piece of stuffing in the center and bring together all the sides to seal it properly. 
  7. Now, take a little flour and roll out again into a circle(like a roti). 
  8. Heat 1/2 tbsp of oil in the tawa and place each piece and cook until both the sides turn a little brown. 
  9. Add a little butter/ghee on the top and serve hot. 

Can be served with pickle/yogurt. To enhance the taste of the stuffing, you can add grated paneer and cheese to it(while mashing it).
