HOW TO PREPARE:


Put  salt and  little water  in a mixing bowl.
Add wheat flour and mix it, adding water to make a chappati dough.
Knead the dough well. Add ghee to the dough and knead again. Dough will become very soft after adding ghee. Keep covered for one hour.


Grind chopped onion, chopped ginger, garlic and green chillies to a fine paste.
Peel the potatoes and mash well. keep aside.


Heat the kadahi and put a little oil, when hot add ground paste.  Add salt and garam masala .    Saute it till the raw smell disappears.
Add mashed potatoes and combine well with the paste. Remove from the heat.
Mix  chopped coriander leaves. 


Now take the dough. Divide it into 13 balls.
Also make 13 balls from Aloo masala.
Roll each wheat flour ball into a small  poories. 
Then keep each aloo balls in the center of each pooris and cover carefully. Flatten a little, apply some wheat flour and roll again to make a big parathas.


Heat tava, grease well and roast well on both sides. 
It goes well with any north Indian curries.  I had prepared Cauli n Gobi curry.  This is yummy I swear..
