Aloo Parata/ Potato Stuffed Indian Bread

Aloo paratha is a popular Indian stuffed bread, which is very filling and will be loved by all. This can be prepared very easily, as all the ingredients added to the stuffing are very easily available in our kitchen pantries.

This is a flatbread made of whole wheat flour, which is stuffed with a potato filling and cooked until golden brown. This aloo paratha is a delicious and versatile dish, which we can have any time of the day. This is a complete meal in itself. this tastes great when served with raita or pickle. This is a perfect lunch box meal for kids. Potato is very filling as it is high in carbs.

I make this often as my daughter likes it a lot. Street vendors in India sell these aloo parathas along with a big chunk of butter or curd on the side. We can add mint, coriander leaves, ginger- garlic paste in the stuffing but I made it simple. Hope you may like this. Try this out and let me know.

  1. Whole Wheat Flour- 2 Cups
  2. Oil- 2 tbsp
  3. salt- as required
  4. Water - to knead

For the stuffing:
  1. Potatoes (boiled and peeled)- 3 nos
  2. Carom Seeds/ Ajwain- 1 tbsp
  3. Red Chili Powder- 1 tbsp
  4. Salt- as required
  5. Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves(optional)- 2-3 tbsp


  1. Knead the whole wheat flour along with oil, salt and required amount of water till it forms a soft, smooth dough. Keep this aside.
  2. Meanwhile make the stuffing by mashing the boiled potatoes along with carom seeds, red chili powder, chopped coriander leaves and salt in a mixing bowl.
  3. Make small balls out of the dough and roll them with a rolling pin into circular discs.
  4. Place a 2 tbsp of the potato filling in the center of the disc and wrap the stuffing by lifting all the sides of the dough into a ball and roll them again using a rolling pin slowly or else the stuffing will come out.
  5. Place it on a hot tawa or a nonstick pan and cook on medium flame. Spread a tbsp of oil on both sides of the paratha and cook till both the sides turn golden brown.
  6. Enjoy hot aloo parathas with curd.
