Aloo Paratha – Stuffed Bread

Aloo Paratha is nothing but stuffed roti. This is one of the popular Indian bread which is served with spicy curries. Roti is stuffed with mashed potatoes and spices which makes it soft and tasty. It is very easy to make. All you need is patience to roll it slowly. After making two or three rotis, you will get hands on it. This is one of my all time favourite. I am sure you will become a favourite too if you make it once. Here you go…


  • Wheat flour – 2 cups
  • Potatoes (medium size) – 2
  • Chopped onion – 1 cup
  • Green chillies – 2
  • Coriander leaves – 1/4 cup
  • Salt to taste

Method of Preparation:

  1. Take 2 cups of flour in a round bottom vessel and add a little salt and 3/4 cup of water or more and knead it to make a smooth dough just like that for chapathi. You can wet your palms with little oil so that the dough will not stick
  2. Make small balls and keep it aside
  3. Now boil potatoes and peel the skin off and mash them in a bowl
  4. Heat oil in a pan and fry onions till they become soft and golden brown. Remove from heat
  5. Now add the finely chopped green chillies, coriander leaves, little salt and fried onions to the mashed potatoes and mix them well
  6. Make small balls from them

  8. Now spread the dough with the rolling pin into a small circle and keep the potato mix in the middle and fold it from all the sides and make a ball
  9. AP2

  10. Repeat the same procedure with all the dough and make balls
  11. AP

  12. Now slowly spread the potato dough balls with rolling pin to form a flat bread like chapathi
  13. Spread it slowly such that the potatoes shouldn’t come out of the balls
  14. Fry the flat bread in a flat pan by spreading little oil on both the sides
  15. You will get a soft tasty aloo paratha

🙂 Serve hot with any curries/pickle.

  6. hi Aloo Paratha looks great! I have never tried making this way, with the stuffing separate. You see, I never get to roll it correctly:-( I always wish I could have it that way, but end up mixing the mashed potatoes into the dough and kneading together, easy way out. Dunno when I will be able to get this way right…
