To describe Aloo Paratha in one sentence: A tortilla with potato stuffing. It is another Indian recipe. Aloo Parathas are basically unleavened dough stuffed with a spiced mixture of mashed potato, which is rolled out and cooked on a hot pan with butter or oil.Everyone who know me know that Aloo Parathas are my weakness! In fact, everybody in school used to get an extra aloo paratha just for me! Sometimes, I was so tempted that I didn't even save a little bit for the friend who got Aloo Paratha for me! ;-) Such is my love for Aloo Paratha! In fact, there are many aunties in our society who call me home to feed me Aloo Paratha.! :-D I think I have sufficiently established how much I love Aloo Paratha!
