Potato roti is made with potatoes, coriander, spices and ghee tossed into the dough. Use 2 tablespoons water and knead into a soft aloo roti dough. The potato roti made with plain flour is then cooked on a non stick tawa or griddle till golden brown in colour.
potato rotis are the perfect Indian breakfast recipe. We have our potato rotis with some homemade curds and a glass of chaas. For lunch or dinner, Indian potato roti is a perfect replacement for roti. In fact, potato rotis can be one meal dinner had with curd and loads of sliced onions.
Our potato roti recipe is not to be confused with punjabi aloo paratha where the aloo stuffing is put in the centre of the dough and cooked. In potato roti we have put the boiled potatoes into the dough and it's the same way Gujarati theplas are made.
The addition of boiled and grated potatoes makes these rotis so soft that they literally melt in your mouth! Plus, potato rotis is also a smart way to clear your stock of potatoes, because this recipe turns out best with old potatoes.

Roti is a popular Indian flatbread eaten with subzi, curries and gravies for lunch or dinner. While mostly it is made with whole wheat flour and salt, you can use a number of flour and spices to make variation. Also, you can add in some chopped vegetables to give it a nice mouthfeel and flavour. The addition of paneer or oats also helps in making it more wholesome.
