Aloo Paratha is a dish wish a universal appeal! While north Indians like to have it any time of the day, for breakfast, Indian lunch or dinner, South Indians too have borrowed this dish from the north and incorporated it into their supper and dinner menus.
What makes these whole wheat parathas so appealing is the soft and tasty filling of potatoes flavoured with peppy spice powders and crunchy onions. Green chillies spike up the flavour of the stuffing, while amchur gives it an enjoyable tinge of tanginess.
Aloo parathas taste best when served hot with pickles/achaar and curds, but they may also be carried in a dabba.
Punjabis love their aloo parathas smeared with homemade safed makhan and with a tall glass of lassi.
