Aloo Parathas 

Method 1.Boil potatoes and peel the skin. In a bowl, add mashed potatoes, salt, green chilies, onions, chat powder, coriander powder, ginger garlic paste. Add garam masala powder and check for salt. Mix well together. This becomes the potato stuffing.
2.Take 2 cups of wheat flour, add 1/2 cup of water  slowly to the flour to knead it and prepare a dough that is not sticky or too wet. Divide this prepared dough into 8 portions, each ball almost the size of a golf ball.
3.Using a rolling  pin, roll out  3 inch disc shape bread. Add a tbsp of potato stuffing and close the rolled bread, by bringing the ends together. Add a dust of wheat flour and carefully roll the disc again. Approximately 1/2 inch thickness and 6 inch in diameter each.
4.Heat a flat pan, add the Aloo stuffed wheat  bread and cook for about a minute, flip carefully as not to break the bread :) add a tsp of vegetable oil on the surface of wheat bread , further cook the bread on both sides, for a minute or two till they appear golden brown in color.  Remove and continue cooking the rest of parathas (aloo stuffed wheat bread)
Enjoy hot parathas with white butter , and yogurt :)
