Aloo Paratha (Stuffed Potato Paratha)

If  you ask any Indian from northern part of India about their ideal breakfast... the answer is quiet likely to be "some hot stuffed parathas" !

With some hot spicy masala chai... the best, they said!

For Dough:(Yield 6-8 Parathas)
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of water (minus 1/2 tbsp)Note: use 1/2 cup in dryer season.
A pinch of salt (approximately 1/8 tsp)

For Stuffing :
1 medium size potato (around 150-180 gm)cooked and skinned
2 tbsp Chopped Coriander
1-1 1/2 tsp Lime/Lemon Juice
1 bunch (around 1 tsp ) of Kasuri Methi (Dried Fenugreek Leaves)
1/2 tsp Jeera/Cumin
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Chili powder
1/4 tsp Garam Masala 

1/4 Cup of whole wheat flour for dusting 
1-2 tbsp Butter 
2 tbsp Vegetable oil

Boil and skinned potato, use a fork to mash the potato, crush kasuri methi/dried fenugreek leaves with your palm, add it to the mashed potato with all spices and salt listed under stuffing. Blend well.

Pull out small dough and shape it into pingpong size, roll it out into a small disk, and wrap 2 tbsp of filling into it, pinch the edge to seal well.

Roll the paratha into a flat disk slightly larger than a CD size.

Heat up a cooking pan, with 1 tsp of oil,  cook the paratha both sides until golden brown in color.

Serve with butter,yogurt  and some mint chutney
