Meanwhile, chop onions, garlic cloves, and a piece of ginger.
Grind them together, with some water, to form a consistent paste.
Strain off water from palak, and grind it to a fine paste. Take
oil in a pan with medium flame, let it warm a little, then put

Aloo Paratha:


- 3 Potatoes

- Atta and water

- Coriander leaves

- Graram masala, salt, and red chilly powder

Method of preparation:

Mix atta with water in proper proportions to form a consistent
dough, and let it so for 15-20min. Meanwhile, chop the washed
potatoes into big sized blocks (helps in cooking faster). Cook
them in a pressure cooker for three whistles (it took about
15-20min for this). Take them out, and mash them by hand. Along
with it, add a pinch of garam masala powder, salt and chilly
powder. Also add finely chopped coriander leaves. Mix all of them
well. You can also add finely chopped green chillies. I avoided it.

Now, roll a slice of dough to a thin circular shape. Make two of
these, and oil it. Then, spread the mashed aloo on one of the
unbaked bread/dough. Put another rolled dough slice over this,
and roll it again. Bake it on a hot pan flipping it on either
sides. Put a little butter over it, and Aloo paratha is ready!
