Aloo Paratha is an authentic Indian chapati stuffed with Potatoes and spices. It is part of everyday breakfast meal in northern part of India and equally famous in Southern region with name of Parota.

This recipe makes Punjabi style Paratha.

There is a place in central Delhi, called Parathe Wali Gali (a street full of paratha shops). They usually follow the same recipe as listed here except that they like to deep fry the flat-bread and we are roasting it with light Oil.

Off-course, you can fry them too, if you like. But, for people with weight loss plans, we would suggest to restrict yourself to low oil roasting.

This tried and tested makes 6 Aloo paratha each with about 130 Calories.

We even have a Tandoori Aloo Paratha recipe made without Tandoor, right in your standard Indian Kitchen.
