Aloo Parathas

Here is a recipe for potato stuffing I used in my parathas recently. It's adapted from a recipe in Neelam Batra's 1,000 Indian Recipes.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 pounds (about 3 large) potatoes ( I peel them before boiling)
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
4 spring onions, white and green parts, minced
2 fresh green chilies, minced
2 tablespoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons chaat masala
1 teaspoon ground dried fenugreek leaves
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
salt to taste

Method:

Boil the potatoes in lightly salted water to cover until tender, about 20 minutes. Mash them in a medium bowl. Mix in the rest of ingredients. Stuff your bread, cook, and devour!

Aloo parathas look yummy Meeso!btw which potatoes did u use for parathas...? i never got good potatoes in Michigan.. the potatoes which i use get sticky and my parathas become messy..i use potatoes named "Michigan's best". but they are not suitable for parathas :(

meeso said...

~ Thanks, Rashmi... I always love spring onions in anything!

~ HI Anjali, I used Russet potatoes for this recipe because that is what I had in the house and they stay lighter and fluffier, but I have used baby red, or yukon gold before... Thanks for stopping by :)
