I am in Dubai since two months and as we all know it’s generally hot over here. For the past couple of days it’s been drizzling and to all our relief there was some chillness by night. What could be a best dinner in such times???
Kichadi, Pakodas, parantas … Yes!hot parantas with dal and raita was my choice. Wanna know the recipe for a delicious dinner??? Here it is.
Aloo Stuffed Methi Paratha
Preparation Time: 25-30 mins
CookingT ime: 15-20 min

Whole wheat flour- 3 cups
Methi leaves-1 1/2 cups
Potato boiled and mashed-2 cups

Chop the methi leves and clean it with water very well
In a kadai put ½ tsp oil and fry all the methi leaves till it become tender. Then remove from heat and let it cool down. Put the leaves and little salt into flour and mix well with as required water to form a soft daugh.Keep it aside for half an hour.
Mix in gram masala powder, cumin seeds, and grated ginger salt to taste with mashed potato. Make sure the filling is lump free as it will be easier to stuff and roll the paratha without the filling oozing from the sides. Make equal lemon sized balls and keep them aside till needed.
