Aaloo Paratha

Aaloo paratha is one of the most popular breakfast of North Indians. These are prepared in numerous styles , but how ever they are prepared they are relished by everyone. Ideally fried in desi ghee and served with fresh chilled curd they are a treat .

With me, the Aloo Parathas have nostalgic memories. I remember a sardar's dhabba which was near our school who served amazing Aaloo Parathas.We were not allowed to step out of school, but the Parathas were such an addiction that we bunked school.Those days were different, somehow at times we could bunk a class before school. 

Coming back to Aaloo Parathas, this version is a special version, my DIL has introduced this and we all really enjoy them. I have at least 5-6 versions of Aloo Parathas, which I shall share sometime later. I have used 11/2 cups boiled potato for two Parathas, which is a little more than the normal mixture a person would normally use, but I really stuff them well and make them big. The North Indian Paratha is nice and big and for a person like me one Paratha should be more than enough.
