Aloo Paratha

 Aloo paratha is everybody's favorite ,isn't it ?Mine too.
        There are two instances ,how i started liking this Aloo paratha?
       First one is: When i stayed in hostel, my pals from Punjab make aloo paratha.Even though they are younger to me ,they make these parathas and i eat them hehe..
      Second one is :While we stay at Bangalore we usually go to a Singh dhabha near by every week.They serve perfect aloo paratha and serve it with plain yogurt .When i hear itself  my mind is now where here.
    Even though my hostel friends add onions to their paratha's ,I haven't added in this version .You can very well do so if you love onion flavor in paratha.In that case chop the onions fine and add it .

  2. Methi Paratha 
  3. GreenChanna Paratha
