Aloo Paratha -- How to make Aloo Paratha -- Aloo Paratha Recipe

Aloo Paratha
Aloo Paratha is one of the most popular breakfast dish of Northern and Western parts of India. Flatten whole wheat bread stuffed with spicy potato mash. It is usually served with curd, sugar, butter and chutney.  I am a South Indians like everything spicy, so served it with green chutney.
Long back, when we (my husband and me) were travelling to Agra from Delhi in a car, our car driver stopped at a typical Dhaba in a village called Kursi. There he serves only Punjabi cuisine. That was where I had authentic taste of aloo paratha. One will fall in love with its taste. The cook of the dhaba is so generous with us, he showed how they make it and also gave me the recipe. They cook it on clay stove called chulha, and back home, gave a try, of course had to cook on stove top only. But the taste was nice and was almost the same. And most important thing is it is liked by every one of my family members. Even now I follow the same recipe.  
Whenever I make aloo paratha I want to post it, but could not do it for some silly reasons. Now time has come to post it, so here it is.
