Aloo paratha is a popular Punjabi delicacy, prepared by stuffing potato masala into Indian bread (wheat paratha).

This Aloo stuffed paratha is a worldwide famous North Indian food, which you can serve just with curd or masala curd or simple pickle. As potato paratha is very mild, it is one of the kids’ friendly healthy and delicious breakfast recipes.

Moreover, the high starch and protein content makes it a whole meal itself and thus may not need any special side dish.

I tasted this delicious Aloo paratha for the first time from my dear friend Lavanya’s home and it was the authentic mild version. She served that aloo paratta with ‘Paneer chole gravy’, which tasted heavenly. After that day I tried to master in preparing it.

Now it is a regular food for my little potato lovers. Though I make this aloo paratha with my own style stuffing, it tastes great like the traditional one.

Potato is a friendly vegetable and even though it is high in carbs, potato still holds a good amount of other healthy vitamins and minerals.

The potato’s fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 content, coupled with its lack of cholesterol, all support heart health.

Potatoes contain significant amounts of fiber. Fiber helps to lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, thereby decreasing the risk of heart disease.

Boiled potatoes are helping in Fighting cancer, controlling your diabetes and getting stronger bones. Be healthy and happy by eating this wonder friendly vegetable MODERATELY 🙂
