For Dough Preparation:

Now, add the Water and Salt to it and mix well.
Prepare a dough out of this mixture and apply some Oil on it.
Let it rest for half an hour. Meanwhile, you can start preparing the Aloo stuffing mixture.
For Aloo Stuffing Mixture:
Get another bowl and add the boiled Potatoes to it.
Mash well till you see no lumps in it.
Add the chopped Onions, chopped Ginger and Garlic, Red Chili Powder, Garam Masala Powder, Chaat Masala Powder, Green Chilies, chopped Coriander Leaves, and Salt to the Mashed Potatoes.
Mix it thoroughly and prepare some small balls to stuff inside the dough. If you can't form the balls properly, mix some flour in the mixture to bind it together.
For Paratha Preparation:
Get a medium sized dough ball and flatten it slightly as shown in the following video.
Place the stuffing ball in the center of this flattened dough.
Cover the stuffing with the help of dough and prepare a flat round shaped dough.
Dust it with some flour and flatten it gently using a rolling pin.
Switch on the flame and heat a Tawa on it.
Once the Tawa is hot enough, pour some Oil or Ghee and spread it across the surface.
Place the Aloo Paratha on this greased surface and cook it on medium flame.
Roast it nicely on both the sides till you get the perfect crisp brown color.
Serve it hot with your favorite accompaniment.
- If you are planning to make these Parathas for long journeys, roast them with some extra Oil. The additional layer of Oil will help you preserve them for more time.
- You may avoid Green Chilies if you don't prefer spicy Parathas.
