About Aloo Paratha

Aloo Paratha is a popular Indian flatbread filled with delicious seasoned potatoes. In Hindi, Aloo means 'potato' and Paratha means 'layered bread'. Hence, Aloo Parathas literally means parathas filled with boiled, mashed and seasoned potatoes between the layers.

First, make the dough with whole wheat flour. The boiled potatoes are then mashed or grated and seasoned to taste. This delicious spiced potato mixture is then filled into a small pastry dish and sealed. It is then rolled and deep fried in plenty of ghee or oil.

These are prepared in the same way all over India with slightly different spices. My Aloo Paratha recipe uses a unique combination of spices which makes it delicious and has a wonderful texture.

How to Make Aloo Paratha (Step by Step with Photos)

make dough

1. Combine 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1/2 cup water in a mixing bowl. Begin mixing by adding more water as needed to form a smooth, non-sticky dough. Knead well until it becomes very smooth and pliable.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (2)

2. If you press the dough, it should be easily dented and smooth. Cover and keep until the filling is ready. I always let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes. If you want to skip the rest, just knead a little more and use immediately.

3. Cook the potatoes until tender and not mushy or soggy. If cooking in a pressure cooker, add the potatoes to the pot with 1 cup of water. Pressure cook on medium heat 3 to 4 times, depending on size. If cooking in a pot, pressure cook for 5-6 minutes and then let it drop naturally.

4. When the potatoes have cooled, peel them and chop them or mash them with a fork until smooth. There should be no potato chunks left as they will tear the aloo paratha while rolling. If your potatoes seem sticky or doughy, don't mash them. Instead, use your fingers to break off small pieces. You don't want sticky potato filling.

Method 1 – Aloo Paratha Volume

I have shared 3 ways to roll parathas (picture below). See which one is easier for you first.

8. Sprinkle some flour on the surface of the roll. Flatten a ball of dough and dip it in flour. Flatten and roll into 4 inch round roasts/discs.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (9)

9. Place a seasoned potato ball in the center and lift up the sides.

10. Press the filling into the center and push the sides up to form a cup. If the aloe filling is sticky, rub some flour on your fingers.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (11)

11. Turn everything in your hand clockwise to raise the sides. The dough spreads itself and covers the filling. (Watch the video)

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (12)

12. Repeat this step, pushing the aloe in and flanging until the edge meets the top.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (13)

13. Join all the edges well, the filling is not visible. Instead of removing the excess dough, I pressed it onto the ball.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (14)

14. Dip the ball in flour on both sides and gently flatten it with your fingers. This is very important so that the filling is evenly distributed throughout the paratha.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (15)

15. Place the seal down in the tread area and roll gently and evenly without applying pressure. Don't roll aloo paratha continuously. Instead, turn it clockwise a little after every 4 to 6 rolls to make sure it doesn't tear or stick.

You can make it as thin or thick as you like. I keep mine thin and 8 to 9 inches. If you see the filling coming out when you roll it out, sprinkle some flour inside. Sprinkle with flour only as needed and avoid using too much.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (16)

Method 2: roll

I took these photos in 2015 but never got around to sharing them on the blog. The stuffing I make here is to soften the spices in oil and then add it to the mashed potatoes. It is spicier and has more paprika.

Place the aloe filling in a 5-inch baking dish. Then fold and bring all the edges up. Add them gently and remove the excess dough. Flatten slightly and pass the flour. Flatten again with your fingers into a 4-inch disc to distribute the filling evenly. Then wrap it as much as possible.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (17)

Third method: Scrolling

Roll 2 6-inch patties. Spread the aloe vera mixture on one of the roasts as shown below. Wet the edges with a little water. Place another roast on top. Press the sides lightly to seal both baking sheets. Then sprinkle with flour and spread evenly to the desired thickness. Using this method, you can make only 6 large parathas. Divide the dough into 12 and the filling into 6.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (18)

Fried Aloe Paratha

16. Once you've tossed 3-4 paranthas, heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot enough, dust the excess flour from the aloo paratha and gently transfer to a baking sheet. Within 2 minutes, you will see air bubbles. Turn it on the other side.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (19)

17. Press lightly with a spatula. You will see the aloo paratha start to puff up. Drizzle with a little ghee or oil. I added about 1 teaspoon of ghee.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (20)

18. Flip it back and forth on the other side and drizzle with more ghee. Cook by pressing the edges with a spatula to cook them nicely. The cooked paratha will fill your whole house with aroma. When you see golden to light brown spots in the aloo paratha, remove it to a plate.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (21)

19. Fry the next one, make sure the pan is hot enough, not too hot. Keep setting the flame to medium or low as needed to prevent the parathas from burning. Place a clean cloth in a bowl or on a cooling rack and stack the parathas to keep them moist.

Serve Aloo Paratha with pickles or yogurt. You can also cover your paratha with butter. we love themMint Chutneycoriander /Coriander chutney.

Professional advice

boil the potatoes firstProper form is the key to making the best aloo parathas. Cook them until tender, which means they are cooked and not overcooked. Soggy potatoes make the filling very soggy and sticky, not good for pasta.

mashed or grated potatoesGetting it right is also important. There should be no potato cubes left in the mash as they will spoil the paratha. Don't mash them too much before they become mushy. So you can grate them instead of mashing them to avoid mold.

paratha filling: The first filling and wrapping method I show here is the best method because it completely locks the filling into the dough and prevents it from coming out.

(Video) Aalu Patal Ki Masala Curry || Basic Homemade Recipes

Flatten and spread the filling.Once the spiced aloe is sealed into the batter, it becomes the perfect aloe paratha. This prevents the parathas from tearing and distributes the filling evenly.

Fried paratha at the endVery low heat will harden them. Bake them on medium to high heat so that they are well cooked. It is also important to adjust the flames as needed so that they do not burn.

Aloe Vera Paratha Recipe | Stuffed Potato Paratha - Swasthi Recipe (23)

raw material

Daddy: It is very important to choose the right kind of potato to make these parathas. Some types of potato become very soft and sticky when boiled. Avoid these types of potatoes. Avoid using freshly cut potatoes. Old potatoes, Yukon gold potatoes and junk potatoes are all good for parathas.

spices: Most people make aloe vera using minimal spices like cumin, coriander powder and paprika. The combination of spices I use here makes the parathas so delicious that when you fry them, your house will be filled with a delicate aroma.

However, if you don't have or don't like a particular spice, you can simply leave it out. You can also increase or decrease the spices according to your preference.

butter: Aloo parathas are mostly fried with a lot of ghee as it imparts a smoky aroma and delicate texture. If you don't have ghee, use any regular oil.


1. You can also soften the spices before adding them to the mashed potatoes. To do this, heat 1 tablespoon of oil or fat in a small pan. Add ginger and green chilies. Saute for 30 seconds and then add all the spice powder and salt. Close and add it to the mashed potatoes.

Even uncooked, aloo parathas turn out great because the filling steams while frying.

2. Some people will add green onions to the filling. They are either raw or fried in oil until they lose their raw smell.

Ingredients (US cup = 240 ml)


  • 2 cup whole weat flour (240 k) (thread)
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil (optional, see note)
  • Agua Knead as much as needed (I used ¾ cup + 2 tbsp)

fill out

  • 350 gram Daddy (3 medium potatoes)
  • 1 green chile chopped (optional)
  • ¾ teaspoon minced ginger (or ¼ teaspoon minced ginger)
  • 2 Tablespoon cilantro (chopped)
  • ½ teaspoon Salt (adjusted to taste)
  • ½ a ¾ teaspoon mixed spice (adjusted to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon Kashmiri Red Chili Powder (adjusted to taste)
  • ¾ a 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • ½ teaspoon chat masala (or 1 tbsp lemon juice or ½ tsp amchur)
  • 1 teaspoon Fen Greek Casuri (dried fenugreek leaves)
  • ¼ teaspoon Adjuan (carob seeds) (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon Fennel seed powder (sanfu powder) (optional)


  • 4 Tablespoon butter (preferred use)



  • Cook the potatoes until tender but not mushy. To pressure cook in a traditional pot, cook 3 to 4 whistles, depending on the size of the potato. In the Instant Pot I pressure cook medium potatoes for 5 minutes.

  • While the potatoes are baking, make the dough. Add the flour, oil and salt to a bowl. Pour half a cup of water and start mixing into a dough. Add more water as needed to make a smooth but not sticky dough.

  • Knead until smooth and pliable. If you press the dough down with your fingers, it should dent easily, which means it's quite soft. Cover and rest until the filling is ready.

  • When the potatoes are ready, let them cool slightly and peel them while they are still hot. Make sure your boiled potatoes are not soggy or soggy.

  • We rub or mash them until there are no potato pieces left. Use your fingers to break up any remaining potato chunks in the mash or they will ruin the pasta. Don't mash it either, because the potatoes will become soft and sticky.

  • Add ginger, green chillies, coriander leaves, salt, paprika powder, curry powder, coriander powder, kasuri methi and chaat masala. Crush the kasuri methi before adding it.

  • Elective: Also add optional ingredients: ajwain and fennel powder.

  • Gently mix all the ingredients and taste. Add more salt or spices according to your taste.

  • Divide the aloe filling into 8 portions. Also, divide the dough into 8 portions. Keep the dough covered.

How to make Aloo Paratha

  • Roll a ball of dough in the palm of your hand until smooth. Lightly dust the roll area with a little flour. Flatten the dough balls and dip them in a little flour.

  • method one– Dust off excess and roll into a 4-inch round pan or baking dish. Put some of the aloe vera filling in the middle. Gently lift the sides of the roast into the cup. Repeat using your fingers to push the filling in, then lift the dough until the edges are resting on top of the filling. (see video).

  • If the filling sticks, dip our fingers in the flour. Place the edges over the filling and carefully bring them together to seal. (See step-by-step photos or videos.)

  • Method Two– Roll a 5 inch roti and place the filling in the center, pinning the edges together and making small creases. We put everything on top and add them to seal the filling. Shake off excess dough on top.

  • Dip the filled balls in the flour and flatten gently to distribute the filling evenly. This ensures that the filling never comes out at all. Remove excess dust.

  • Sprinkle some flour on the roll area.

  • Place the paratha disc in the rolling area, sealing side down. Begin to roll evenly without applying pressure.

  • Don't roll aloo paratha continuously. Instead, turn it clockwise a little after every 4 to 6 rolls to make sure it doesn't tear or stick. Sprinkle with flour as needed, avoid excess. If you see the filling coming out, dust it lightly with a little flour to seal it.

  • Roll the aloo paratha as thin or thick as you like without breaking it. I roll mine to 8 to 9 inches.

  • Move the roll to a dry place. Once you have made 3, you can start frying them.

  • Method Three- Using this method, you will be able to make only 6 large parathas. So divide the dough into 12 and the filling into 6. Roll 2 rotis, 6 inches each. Spread the aloe vera mixture on one of the roasts. Wet the edges with a little water. Place another roast on top. Press the sides lightly to seal both baking sheets. Then sprinkle with flour and spread evenly to the desired thickness.


  • Heat a pan or pan to cook the aloe paratha. The iron must be hot enough otherwise the parathas will harden.

  • When the pan is hot, gently place the wrapped aloe paratha on top.

  • Within 2-3 minutes, you will see air bubbles on top. Then turn to the other side and cook.

  • You will see the aloo paratha puff up and cook beautifully. Drizzle with ghee or oil and flip to cook the other side.

  • Sprinkle some ghee on this side as well and press the edges to cook.

  • You will soon see golden to light brown spots on the aloo parathas. Remove to a plate and stack. This keeps them soft.

  • Brush the aloo paratha with a little butter and serve with pickles or yogurt. ThisCoriander chutneyTheMint Chutneyworks well too

  • Adjust the amount of spices and herbs according to your preference.
  • Avoid using too much flour when rolling as it will harden and dry out the paratha.
    Roll the parathas evenly without pressing a point.
  • For variety, you can use store-bought chopped paneer or steamed carrots and peas. Be sure to mash the vegetables.
  • You can also saute metha leaves or spinach leaves till they wilt. Let them cool and add them to the mashed potato mixture. Also use only the leaves and not the stems of these vegetables.
  • Avoid new potatoes. Older potatoes are best for this recipe. Cook the potatoes until they are soft, do not overcook them. We don't want the potatoes soaked in too much moisture.
  • Grate or mash the potatoes until no chunks are visible. But don't crush them too much, otherwise they will become mushy and sticky.
  • After sealing the dough, don't forget to flatten and spread the filling. This way, the filling is evenly distributed and does not come out when rolled.
  • Do not fry over low heat. Fry them on medium high heat. Keep adjusting the flame while frying to prevent the aloe vera from burning.
