Aloo Paratha is one of the most common and popular parathas served for breakfast specially in North India, Punjab or we can say in almost all punjabi families.

Aloo Paratha is a flatbread which is made without using any leavening agent. It is stuffed with a mixture of potatoes and masalas, which is then rolled out and shallow fried in ghee on a hot tawa. It is served hot with homemade white butter,  curd, mango pickle and a glass of Lassi.

I make this Aloo Paratha very often sometimes even three times a week. My son loves Aloo Paratha so much that he can have it at any time of the day.

Now discussing about the ingredients, one of the main ingredients is the Anardana (Pomegranate seeds). It is used to give that little sour taste to the parathas. If it is not available you can also use Dry Mango Powder also known as Amchur Powder. Also, I added in some Ajwain as it helps in good digestion.

Always cook on medium heat, it would cook the paratha inside out and also would make it crispy.

Use Dry mango powder if pomegranate seeds are not available
