I have grown up eating parathas which go by the main ingredient that identifies a certain paratha.

Here "Aloo" paratha's main content is "Aloo-The Potato". Hence our paratha's dominating element is Aloo.

Is Aloo paratha healthy is one of the most common questions asked by many on the low carb diet.

Here is the answer to making it healthy-make this paratha with a relatively large proportion of mashed potatoes and use the wheat flour sparingly, to bind the mash into a dough leading into a rolling consistency.

The highlight of this paratha is the achieved softness and rightly justifies "Aloo" in this paratha.

Here at L.C, we have adapted this recipe with merely few ingredients, and it's a real breeze to work with God-given tools-Our Hands!


Preparation Time-30 mins
Cooking Time-15 mins
Total Time-45 mins
Yields-10/12 parathas

3 cups of mashed potatoes
1 cup of wholemeal flour/wheat flour + 1/4 cup of additional wheat flour for rolling/dusting
1 tsp of ajwain seeds
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of cumin seeds
1/4th tsp of turmeric powder(optional)
1/4th tsp of red chilli powder
1/4 tsp of asafoetida powder(optional)
1 tbsp of olive oil( or any oil)

1. Mix all the ingredients mentioned above in a mixing bowl/container except the oil.

2. Gather all the contents to make a pliable dough. There is no water added as the moisture content from the potatoes bind the flour giving a rollable mixture.

** If the dough gets sticky, you can always dust some more flour or sprinkle a few drops of water to help you work with the dough.


3. Divide the dough into equal-sized balls and keep them covered under a damp cloth or cling film. Take one dough ball and dust it with some dry flour and roll it into a small round shaped flatbread.

4. Cook the paratha onto a frying pan/griddle/Tawa for about a minute or until you see the steam pockets on the underside, then brush some oil on top of the paratha and using tongs, flip it on the other side to cook for another 30-40 secs. Then transfer the paratha onto a kitchen towel.

Serving Suggestion: 

1) Aloo parathas can be served either for breakfast or Dinner with Green Chutney/Raita.

2) We made these for a substantial breakfast as we aim to eat a king-size breakfast to last until lunch without snacking in-between.

My girls love this with plain yoghurt, and that's very kind on the gut too.
