Mashed Potato Flat Bread (Aalo ka paratha)

Aalo ka paratha (Mashed Potato Bread), variety of chapati recipes,Bread & Buns, Breakfast, aalo ka paratha, Mashed Potato paratha, dough,

They say breakfast should be the heaviest meal of the day, giving u a boost of energy at the very start of a day. If u wanna follow these nutritionists “Paratha” is the best thing to have in the morning.  Fried Chapatis or flat bread called Paratha in urdu. No breakfast in the South Asian countries is considered tasty and healthy enough without a Paratha. It can be made of wheat flour / white flour or mixture of both. You can have it with any side dish u want, or with simple omelette, tea/ Pickle. So if u want any change from normal routine try this!! :) Traditionally it is made from ghee, but oil can also be used. Mostly fried flat breads/parathas are eaten plain, but modifications can be made and improvised depending upon taste and choices. I have already discussed various varieties like Radish filled Chapati & Mustard filled parathas :) here's a new type of paratha ur hubby and family will definitely love to have - potato chapati : Aalo ka paratha in urdu. It is extremely yummy. Here is the recipe:
