ALOO PARATHA(RIYADH STYLE) - STEP BY STEP

Aloo paratha in riyadh style, what is so special about these paratha's????? . These paratha's are made only during the ramzan period. Duirng ramzan they put a stall outside a restaurant and they prepare this. You should see the large queue waiting for these paratha's and you also have  tokens issued ahead. 

Only two people will be standing in the stall,one preparing the paratha's and the other person puts in the tawa.Everything happens very fast.

The stuffing is very simple no  powders required,  so  let me go straight to the recipe.

 For this Paratha's you need

For the Stuffing

3 potatoes 
3 green chillies (finely chopped)
1 tbsp. of coriander seeds, grinded coarsely
Handful of fresh coriander leaves
Salt 

For the dough

2 cups of wheat flour
1/2 tsp. of sugar
1 tsp. of ghee
Salt
Water

Oil/ghee - for the paratha's
Preparation

In a bowl,mix the flour with salt and sugar. Add sufficient water to it.Mix well

Finally add the ghee and knead it well , until it forms a soft dough.

Cover and keep it aside for 30 mins.

Pressure cook the potatoes.


In a bowl, add the potatoes, along with chopped chillies and fresh coriander leaves



Now add the coriander seeds(grinded coarsely) along with salt. Mix it well (Definitely you will enjoy the smell of fresh coriander leaves and coriander seeds while mixing)



Now the filling is ready , Take a lemon sized ball form the dough , dust it in flour and roll them into a flat and round shaped one.Place the filling inside and close it well..


Now press lightly with your palm and dust it in the flour.With the rolling pin , roll them well or if you are scared that your filling might come out, then gently press then with your palm.(Quite somedays I used my palm ). 


Heat the tawa, place the Stuffed chapathi and apply  oil/ ghee on its sides as well as on its top.

When both sides are cooked well, remove from the tawa.


Aloo paratha's are ready to be served.....................



Serve it hot with raita's /Pickle's and enjoy :)

You will definitely enjoy the taste of this paratha in every bite .
