Indian bread stuffed with Potatoes and spices. I learnt to make Masaledar Alu Paratha from my Mami / Aunt who passed away two weeks back. This post is dedicated to her memory and her culinary skills.

For the Masala:
1 Onion
3 Garlic Pods
2 Green Chilies
1-Cup Coriander Leaves
1” Ginger piece

Method:
Boil Potatoes.  Peel and grate them.  Mix flour with Salt and bind to a dough. The dough should be neither too soft nor too tough. Divide into balls.
Grind the ingredients for the masala to a paste. Heat Oil in a pan. Add the masala paste and stir-fry until the moisture evaporates. Add the grated Alu, Salt and mix well. Divide into small balls (smaller than the dough ball).
