aloo palak paratha recipe

in this paratha recipe which was shared by a friend, i have kneaded the dough with mashed potatoes, spinach puree and spices. another way to make aloo palak paratha is to just knead the atta or whole wheat flour with the palak puree and then add the mashed spiced potatoes stuffing in the parathas. making stuffed parathas requires little expertise. so for beginners, i would suggest to use this method which is shown in a step by step format.

i have shared the process of stuffed parathas in this aloo paratha recipe. you can replace the filling to get paneer paratha or onion paratha.

parathas are usually eaten as a breakfast and also good as tiffin box or for a short trip. you can serve the aloo palak paratha with lemon or mango pickle or curd or white butter. a cup of hot tea will also be nice.
