Aloo Paratha is made up of two ingredients whole wheat flour and potatoes. There are many health benefits of whole wheat flour. We have used 2.5 cups of potatoes in this recipe.

Whole Wheat flour : 2.25 cups of whole wheat flour is used. Whole wheat flour is excellent for diabetics as they will not shoot up your blood sugar levels as they are a low GI food. See detailed benefits of whole wheat flour and why it's good for you.

What are thoughts are for this Whole wheat aloo paratha recipe!

1. Aloo is high in starch and will lead to an increase in the blood glucose levels. Too much blood glucose gets converted to fats.

2. If you want to gain weight then Aloo Parathas are perfect to be had in breakfast.

3. A good source of phosphorus which is one of the important minerals to maintain and support bone health. 

Aloo parathas are not good for weight loss, diabetics and weight watchers.

What is the healthy option for aloo paratha?

Instead of having a paratha with potato filling opt for using  bajra roti, jowar roti and whole wheat roti to make a healthy Indian bread. Note that when you combine any cereal with dal then the protein quality is enhanced.

Aloo ka paratha is fried in oil and one tablespoon of oil consists of 120 ur figure is highly inaccurate. Aloo ka paratha has about 307-479 calories depending on size and how less oil u use.

Tarla Dalal    Thank you for bringing to our notice. The ghee used in cooking was not calculated. Now the Nutritive table has been updated using 2 tsp of ghee for cooking each paratha.
