Aloo Paratha(a simple recipe)

This is  the best and quick option for a Breakfast  as well as for kids lunch box...
Ingredients:
For the dough
1 cup whole wheat flour(gehun ka atta)
1 tsp oil
 salt to taste

For the aloo stuffing



1 cup boiled and mashed potatoes
1/2 tsp cumin seeds(jeera)
1tsp finely chopped green chillies
1/4 tsp coriander(dhania) powder
1 tsp chat masala(optional)
2tsp oil
 salt to taste
 
For the dough
 Combine all the ingredients and knead into a soft ,smooth dough using enough water.
 Divide the dough into equal portions.keep aside.

For the stuffing

Take a mixing bowl and add the  boiled potaoes to it,Mash  them well and add the remaining ingredients  mentioned  above and make a smooth mixture,(if desired it can be roasted a little in a pan with a tsp of oil but it tastes good even without  roasting .i tried both,)if  the paratha is going into the childs lunch box for school trust me it serves the time and purpose.


To make the paratha:

Roll out one of the dough into a circle using wheat flour for rolling.
Place one portion of the stuffing in the centre of the circle.
Bring together all the sides in the centre and seal tightly.
Roll out again into a circle  using wheat flour for rolling.
Cook on a hot tava(griddle),using a little oil,untill both sides are golden brown.
Serve hot with any spicy gravy or fresh curd.
