Aloo Parotta

Aloo Parotta is one of Vivek's favorites and i try to make it regularly. It can be made by stuffing the flour with the potato mix or by kneading it with the flour. I prefer the kneading one as the flavor in that is wonderful. I made it for my son's birthday party and everyone loved it. Well it was last november, and my son also loves to eat it.

Potatoes - 5 medium boiled and skin removed and smashed well
Onion - 1 large minced
Green chilies - 3 small minced
Ginger garlic paste - 1tbsp
Garam masala - 1 1tsp
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Cilantro - minced
Salt to taste
Cooking oil - as per requried
Wheat flour - 4 cups

1. In a kadai pour 2tbsp of oil and when hot add the fennel seeds followed by the minced onion.
2.Once well done add the green chilies, ginger garlic paste and the garam masala and mix well and wait till the raw smell goes.
3.Add the chili powder and the turmeric powder and wait for the oil to separate

4. Put the smashed potatoes and salt and mix well. Make sure the salt is spread and the potato gets coated fully in the masala. Let it stay for a while as al the water in the potato has to be gone.
5.Add the cilantro and mix well
6.Let it cool before mixing it with the wheat flour
7.Put very little salt in the flour and mix it and keep , now add the potato masala little by little and add only oil and DO NOT ADD WATER.
8. Make thin rotis and make them like how you normally would and rub butter and serve ti with raita or curd.
9. Serve hot.
I am sending this recipe to Srivalli's Roti Mela...Her blog is and an awesome one too!
