ALU PARANTHA / ALOO PARATHA /STUFFED PARANTHA
Just to Share with you.....
After I met my friend Maitri I got chance to eat and learn many North Indian Items. She used to make north Indian items really really good .If she makes stuffed paratha all will be like asthough she has made using mould. I mean the size and thickness remains same for all. She used to make like chappathi and keep stuffing in the centre and roll back into round shape the she will start pressing that to make like chappathi's .I tried many times but my fillings always came out and the edges won't be that good so I started making one small chappathi then used to keep the stuffing then close that with another chappathi the pull out the edges properly and press it to get paratha's done properly.Now my paratha's look likes her parathas but roling done in a indirect way.
