Aloo Paratha Recipe

Today, I share one of my favorite dishes - Aloo Paratha. It is a dish of mashed potato stuffed bread from the Northern India. It is my favorite breakfast dish when I am in India.

Here is my try in making some edible parathas. It might take few trials in making a perfectly round-shaped Paratha. Please share your views and inputs in comments below.
