When I was doing my engineering, there was a “Mandar mess” near our hostel. They used to prepare very delicious parathas. Thats the place where I became a fan of parathas. I used to keenly observe them preaparing it. I tried many times, after some failures, learnt how to cook alu paratha. Now I am good at making parathas. This is one of my many versions of alu paratha.

2. Coriander leaves 5-6 stems
3. Ginger-Garlic Paste 1 tea spn
4. Green chillies 2-3
5. Wheat flour 2-3 cups
6. Oil and Ghee 2 tbl spn each
Add water,salt and little oil to wheat flour.Make dough(similar to chapati dough).Apply oil to the dough and keep for sometime.
Cook the potatoes and smash.Make paste of coriander leaves and green chillies.Add this to potatoes.Add ginger-garlic paste and salt.
Take a small ball of dough, spread it like a poori with hand, take a ball(ping pong ball sized) of potato stuffing, keep it on the poori and close the poori over stuffing. Make paratha applying wheat flour. Fry paratha on tava, apply ghee on both sides.
