Aloo Paratha

Aloo Paratha
Growing Food ... Cooking Together, Washington Youth Garden 2008, page 32

Serves 7

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
3-4 potatoes, boiled
2 green chilies, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
3 green onions, sliced
1 Tbsp ginger, chopped
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp turmeric
Cilantro, ripped
Chili pepper (optional)
Curry powder (optional)
Salt and pepper
Vegetable oil

Directions:


  1. Mash potatoes lightly. Add cilantro to taste, green onions, chilies, salt, pepper, red onion, ginger, lemon, and turmeric. Set aside.

  2. Mix flour and two pinches of salt in a bowl. Slowly add water until dough incorporates, remaining a bit sticky.

  3. Make dough balls, smaller than a fist; sprinkle flour on a rolling pin and surface. Roll out balls thickly, about the diameter of a CD.

  4. Press ball of stuffing into center of dough. Gather the dough around the stuffing until it is completely wrapped. Roll out each sphere into a pancake.

  5. Heat vegetable oil and fry paratha for 4 minutes (per side?), until brown and crispy outside.

  6. Serve with yogurt and lime pickle or any chutney.
