I literally drool over aloo parathas. They are my all-time favourite snack item. But as no good food is without its drawback and side effect, aloo paratha too is quite high in calorie albeit mouth-watering. Nevertheless, once in a while definitely we may allow ourselves the indulgence to fulfill our cravings, keeping every health related thought at bay.

Ingredient: Cooking time: 40 minutes approx.
ü 200 gm whole wheat flour
ü 2 tbsp yogurt
ü 1 small sized onion (finely chopped)
ü 3-4 green chillies (finely chopped)
ü 2 medium sized potatoes (boiled and mashed)
ü 1 tsp dry mango powder
ü 1 tsp paprika or red chilli powder
ü 1 tsp cumin powder
ü Salt to taste
ü Few coriander leaves (optional)
ü 1 tsp garam masala powder
ü White oil for cooking
1) Knead whole wheat flour and yogurt to a smooth dough. Keep it aside for 30 minutes, covered.
2) Meanwhile, add all the spices, onion, green chillies and coriander leaves into the mashed potatoes and mix well.
3) Make 4 small balls out of the wheat flour dough and roll them out into a round mini pancake and put the mashed potato mixture in the middle. (For easy preparation, make small balls out of the potato mixture, ¾ size of the wheat flour balls.)
4) Fold the mixture into the pancake and roll them out again to a bigger paratha. (Dust the parathas with wheat flour frequently while rolling out, to prevent it from fraying.)
5) Shallow fry the parathas in oil and ghee.
6) Serve hot with a pickle of your choice and yogurt.
