Achari Aloo Paratha

Achari Aloo Paratha is more flavorful, spicy, tangy because of the pickle masala, and of course, delicious than the regular stuffed Aloo Paratha. The flavor of homemade Achar (Pickle) makes this Paratha unique and mouth-watering. The preparation is the same as our regular Aloo Paratha though, just add a few more crushed spices and pickle masala to the aloo mixture and it’s ready to be prepared. I have used homemade Aam Ka Achar (Mango Pickle), in case you do not have homemade pickle then you can use the store bought pickle masala too. Adjust spices and heat as per your liking.

Aloo Paratha stuffed with a generous amount of spiced potato mixture, serve with a bowl of curd and pickle on the side is a staple and favorite breakfast of North India. Other than curd and pickle on the side, I always prepare Tomato Chutney to serve as a side to any stuffed Parathas. I don’t have a written recipe for the Tomato Chutney, but I will try to post it as soon as possible. I can eat Aloo Paratha every alternate day for breakfast without getting bored of it as there are several ways to prepare the stuffing of Aloo Paratha and each tastes delicious. My new favorite is Achari Aloo Paratha. I was craving for Aloo Paratha and while preparing the stuffing I added few whole spices and homemade pickle masala to the aloo mixtures just to make it different than the regular Aloo Paratha and trust me, it took the already delicious Paratha to another level. I have already prepared it twice the previous week and I am going to prepare this again for the weekend brunch, if not breakfast. 😀 I genuinely insist you trying this Achari Aloo Paratha.

Recipe:

Step 1- In a large bowl take whole wheat flour, black caraway seedscarom seeds, salt, and oil, mix very well with your fingertips. Using the lukewarm water knead to a smooth dough. Grease the dough with oil and keep aside for 15-20mins

Step 2- Add all the stuffing ingredients to the mashed potatoes and mix very well. Adjust spices and salt if required and divide the mixture into 8 equal parts
Step 3- Divide the dough into 8equal portions. Take one dough ball, dust with some flour, roll and flatten it into a small and thick puri. Place one ball of the stuffing mixture and start pleating from the edges. Bring the pleats in the center and seal the edges. Using the rolling pin, roll it into a shape of a  chapati without spilling out the stuffing. Follow the same for the rest of the dough
Step 4- Heat a griddle/ tawa, place the rolled paratha and when it is partly cooked flip the paratha. Cook the paratha on medium-high to high flame. Spread the ghee or butter on the partly cooked side. Flip the paratha and spread ghee or butter on the other side too. You will see the brown spots on both sides of the paratha
Step 5- When both sides are cooked transfer the paratha to a plate. Cook all the parathas in the same way. Serve warm with a bowl of curd and chutney of your choice
