Recipe for Aloo Parathas – Potato stuffed Indian Flatbread
Alu paratha or potato stuffed Indian flatbread is possibly the most popular stuffed paratha. I have never met anyone who did not like a hot alu paratha straight off the tava, served with a cube of butter that melts in the heat of the paratha to make a small pool of fatty goodness to top the carb indulgence.
Perfect for an indulgent breakfast or as a part of lunch or simply heating up the leftovers for an anytime snack, alu paratha is simply unbeatable. I have fond memories of my grandmom preparing alu parathas for my school picnic lunch box. It was a kind of ritual, picnics meant alu parathas in the tiffin box. Over a period of time, I have perfected the recipe for the best homemade alu paratha and instant yeast is the secret ingredient that gives the most soft and fluffy outer casing, and it stretches beautifully, allowing you to stuff a great deal of filling without the covering dough tearing. You can try this with any other stuffed paratha recipe.

Here, I have served with spinach raita, raw mango and onion chutney and green chutney. You can serve with whatever pickles you have at home or even plain yogurt is perfect.
Since the recipe calls for the use of activated yeast, you can watch my video on how to do this here:
