Serving suggestions for this Aloo Paratha without stuffing

This no stuffed paratha goes best with a bowl of spiced yogurt or thick curdspicy green chutney and some pickles. I also like to serve this no stuffed aloo ka paratha with some gravy based side dish like chole or chana masala to make it into a complete meal.

Meal Ideas

I have found that by dry roasting the parathas and keeping them in an air-tight container or ziplock bags in the freezer, they remain good for later. Place a small sheet of butter paper between the parathas so that they do not stick to each other. Before serving, thaw them and fry them on a hot tawa till they turn crispy. I have frozen aloo parathas like this and kept them for a week in my freezer. They have always turned out to be perfectly delicious upon frying.

Interesting variations to this Aloo Roti or Aloo Paratha without stuffing recipe

  • simple aloo paratha where powdered spices and chopped onion and green chilies are directly added to the mashed potato for stuffing. Rest is the same where it is stuffed into the dough and rolled into parathas before frying
  • aloo onion paratha or aloo pyaz paratha is quite popular on dhaba menus where the quantity of onion is slightly higher in the stuffing. It gives a bite to it and makes the aloo paratha much tastier
  • aloo paneer paratha where the potato is mixed with grated panner for the stuffing for the paratha
  • aloo cheese paratha is another interesting idea where grated cheese, especially mozzarella is added to the stuffing giving the paratha extra flavor and cheesy goodness
  • veg aloo paratha where the stuffing is made without onion and garlic. In most Indian dhabas, you will find this variation served as dhaba style aloo paratha
