Stuffed Aloo Palak Paratha

I never says no to potato and spinach, both are our family favourites.. Most of our dinner goes for parathas and also its quite a best way to sneak veggies or greens either by adding directly to the dough or by stuffing,its has been a long i havent prepared aloo parathas and i tried out this aloo palak combo in this paratha for our sunday's dinner and served along with a simple mixed veggies kurma, eventhough these parathas doesnt need any special side dish..I used few ajwain seeds for tempering the aloo palak masala which turned out more flavourful, these parathas tastes awesome even for lunch and u can very well freeze them for future dinner or lunch, i slightly cooked my parathas and freezed them in ziplock bags, its really handy and quick whenever u feel lazy to cook..Sending to my own event CWS-Ajwain Seeds guest hosted by Kavita..

Aloo palak paratha

Aloo-Palak Masala:
3nos Potatoes (cooked & mashed)
1cup Spinach (chopped)
2nos Onions (chopped)
1no Green chillies (chopped)
1tsp Ajwain seeds
1tsp Garam masala powder
Salt
Oil

Heat oil, let crack the ajwain seeds, add the chopped onions, chopped green chillies, sauté everything for few minutes, add immediately the chopped spinach leaves,cook for few minutes..now add the mashed potatoes, garam masala powder and salt, cook everything in simmer for few minutes, put off the stove..Keep aside and let them cool..

Paratha:
2cups Wheat flour
1/2cup Hot milk
Salt
All purpose flour for dusting

Take the wheat flour in a large bowl with salt, gradually add the hot milk and water,knead everything as a soft dough,keep aside for half an hour..Make a lemon size balls from the dough, dust with all purpose flour,roll them as a small disc, place a medium sized ball of already prepared aloo palak masala, seal the edges together, roll them as parathas by dusting with all purpose flour and rolling gently..

Heat a tawa, drop gently the stuffed aloo palak paratha,drizzle few drops of oil,cook on both sides in medium flame until they get cooked well..Enjoy hot..

Hi Priya,
Your Recipe and Pic sounds YUM!
LAst week, I tried something similar to the above (but used sweet potato instead. Instead of ajwain, I used cumin, just for a strong flavor)
Turned out different, but good (surprisingly) =P
b/w how do I write directly to you? Any mail/message links?
Anbudan,
La Mom

One of my favourites too! While we chop in fresh coriander and even onions into the filling, have never tried 'palak'.
