Aloo Paratha

One of my favorite Sunday breakfast with my family is Aloo Paratha . Partha are whole wheat unleavened Indian bread . They are both plain and stuffed. You can use different kind of stuffings like cauliflower(gobi), radish ( Muli), cottage cheese ( Paneer), potatoes    ( Aloo ) etc,  when making stuffed parathas. Aloo parathas are served with curd and pickle. You can also serve them with Spicy Chickpeas for wholesome meal for lunch. Enjoy ! 🙂
