Like Aloo Methi Paratha

  1. Aloo Methi paratha also known as Methi Aloo Paratha is a great kids tiffin box option.  Paratha or stuffed paratha are sumptuous Indian flat-breads that can be relished with curd, pickle, raita or even sabji. They can be as simple as the plain paratha or something as filling as the aloo bhujiya paratha or the lifafa paneer paratha. Below are some of my favorite stuffed paratha recipes that you can relish for breakfast or lunch
     

Dough for Aloo Methi Paratha

  1. For making the dough of aloo methi paratha, in a deep bowl, take 1 cup whole wheat flour.
  2. Add 1 tsp oil . Oil can be substituted with ghee or butter. The fat helps in making soft parathas.
  3. Add salt to taste.
  4. Gradually add water to form a dough. The quantity of water will depend upon the quality of flour. Knead into a soft dough using enough water. We have used approx. 5 tbsp of water. Always while making stuffed paratha knead the dough little soft so it is easy to roll the parathas.
  5. Divide the dough into 5 equal portions and keep aside.

For the Methi Aloo stuffing:

  1. For preparing the Methi aloo stuffing, take a bunch of methi leaves.
  2. Firstly, we will clean and wash the Methi Leaves and separate the leaves from the stems.
  3. Now chop the methi leaves finely and keep aside.
  4. To begin making the aloo methi parathas, heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds.
  5. When the seeds crackle, add the fenugreek leaves. Fresh methi leaves tastes the best but, if you don’t have them then add kasuri methi or dried fenugreek leaves.
  6. Sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
  7. Add the ginger-green chilli paste. You can also make use of finely chopped ginger-green chillies.
  8. Add the turmeric powder and coriander powder.
  9. Add the chaat masala. You can substitute it with amchur powder, anardana powder or lemon juice.
  10. Add the salt, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  11. Add the potatoes.
  12. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  13. Divide the stuffing into 5 equal portions and keep aside.

How to make aloo methi paratha:

  1. To make the methi aloo paratha, take a portion of the dough and flatten them between the palms. Deep it in whole wheat flour nicely and remove the excess flour.
  2. Roll out the dough into a 125 mm. (5") diameter circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
  3. Place one portion of the aloo methi stuffing in the centre of the circle.
  4. Bring together all the sides in the centre. Seal the dough ball tightly.
  5. Roll out again into a 150 mm. (6") diameter circle, using a little whole wheat flour for rolling. Roll it very lightly, if you press hard while rolling then the stuffing may come out from the sides of the paratha.
  6. Place the stuffed aloo methi paratha gently on the hot tava. Cook one side of the paratha till you see small blisters on top of the paratha.
  7. Flip the Aloo Methi paratha and cook a little. Drizzle 1 tsp oil around the paratha.
  8. Flip the Aloo Methi paratha, press it lightly on the edges and cook the paratha well one one side.
  9. Once the aloo methi paratha is cooked nicely on both sides, remove it on a plate.
  10. Repeat steps 1 to 9 to make 4 more aloo methi paranthas.
  11. Serve the aloo methi parathas (methi aloo paratha) hot with fresh curds or pickle.
  12. If you enjoyed this stuffed aloo methi paratha recipe, then also try other stuffed parathas like Gobhi Paneer Palak Parathas, Hare Mutter Ke Parathe, Methi Paneer Paratha. Enjoy them for lunch or dinner smeared with a dollop of safed makhan.
