Introduction: How to Make ... Aloo Paratha

My girlfriend missed india.. so we made Aloo Paratha and you guys get a guide

Step 1: The Ingredients

For the mash :

  • 6 small potatoes
  • 1 spicy red chili pepper
  • 4 garlic
  • 1 purple onion
  • 1 ginger root ( about 3 cm cube is needed)
  • a bunch of curry leaves ( 8 are good)

For the Dough :

  • flour
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • sugar
  • water

Step 2: Prepping the Potatoes

we are stream cooking the potatos becuse we want them to be dry

so start by slicing them in half than place them on top of boiling water ( on the steamer) for 30 minutes

cover them up with a pan

Step 3: Slicing Dicing and Frying

slice and dice all the ingediances

start with freying the onions first when they turn brown add everithing else.

i am using Gee ( a type of butter ) for extra flavor but any oil/ butter can be used

cook for about 4 minutes and let it rest

Step 4: The Final Peel

after 30 minutes remove the potatos from the steamer.

peel of the , since they are soft it sould be quiet easy

Step 5: Mashing It All Up

mash the potato with the fried veggies and onions a until its all mixed and smooth

Step 6: How to Make the Dough

150 g flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon oil

100 g water

mix, knead until you can call it dough

Step 7: Resting Phase

The dough need to rest for about an hour

And its much more nice to handle cold mash-potato to warm one..

Dont worry it will be hot soon enough

Step 8: Combining the Aloo With the Paranta

Now that you have everything time for the last prep phase

Cut the dough into six pieces, and round them up so they'll be around 6 cm in diameter, with about 5 mm thickness

Take a little mash and place inside the dough, close the edges so all the mash will be covered then flatten until the mash almost burst through the thin dough.

Step 9: Frying

Place on a pan with some Butter/Oil until brown

Step 10: Dip Note
