For cooking:


  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour and salt.
    • Gradually add water and knead the mixture until it forms a soft and pliable dough.
    • Cover the dough and let it rest for about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a separate bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, chopped onions, green chilies, grated ginger, red chili powder, turmeric powder, cumin seeds, garam masala, chopped coriander leaves, and salt.
    • Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Assemble the Parathas:
    • Divide the dough into six equal-sized portions.
    • Take one portion and roll it into a small circle using a rolling pin and some dry flour for dusting.
    • Place a generous amount of the potato filling in the center of the rolled dough circle.
    • Bring the edges of the dough towards the center, covering the filling entirely, and seal it well.
    • Flatten the filled dough slightly and dust it with dry flour.
  4. Roll and Cook the Parathas:
    • Using a rolling pin, gently roll out the stuffed dough into a circular-shaped paratha, approximately 6-7 inches in diameter.
    • Heat a tawa (flat griddle) or a non-stick pan over medium heat and place the rolled paratha on it.
    • Cook for about a minute or until small bubbles start to appear on the surface.
    • Flip the paratha and apply some ghee or oil on the cooked side.
    • Cook for another minute, pressing lightly with a spatula until golden brown spots appear.
    • Flip again, apply ghee or oil on this side as well, and cook until both sides are evenly golden brown.
    • Repeat the process with the remaining dough and filling.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Remove the cooked parathas from the pan and place them on a serving plate.
    • Serve hot with yogurt, pickles, chutney, or any side dish of your choice.
    • Aloo parathas are best enjoyed fresh off the stove when they are still warm and crisp.
