How To Make Dhaba Style Aloo Paratha

1. Make balls of paratha dough : Divide the dough into portions. Depending upon the size of parathas you like, divide into 6-8 equal portions. Shape into balls. Flatten the dough balls. Cover with a damp cloth and let them rest for 15-20 minutes.


2. Dry roast spices : In a pan add 1 tsp each of black peppercorns, fennel seeds, and whole coriander seeds. Dry roast on low flame till aromatic. Keep aside and let it cool. Coarsely crush the spices in a mortar or grinder.


3. Prepare potato stuffing : In a mixing bowl, mash 4 medium sized boiled potatoes. Do not mash them completely. Leave some texture. Add salt to taste, 1 tsp red chili powder, 2 tsp coarsely crushed dried pomegranate seeds, ground spice mix. Add 1 chopped onion, 1 chopped green chili and handful of chopped coriander. Mix and taste to check the flavors and seasoning. Divide mixture into balls. You will be able to make 6-8 balls depending upon the size of parathas you like.


4. Roll parathas : Apply little-clarified butter. (The word “clarified butter” is not giving proper feel; we will use the word “ghee”). Put the stuffing. And seal it. Roll into paratha of desired thickness.


5. Fry parathas : Put on a hot skillet. Cook on medium flame for 1-2 minutes. Flip. Apply GHEE. (Better now!). Flip and apply ghee on the other side too. Cook on a low to medium flame till both the sides are golden brown.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
