Aloo paratha (Hindi: आलू पराठा, Marathi: बटाटा पराठा , Urdu: آلو پراٹھا ‎) ("potato paratha") is an Indian and Pakistani recipe and one of the most popular breakfast dishes throughout western, central and northern regions of India as well as in Pakistan.[1] Aloo-stuffed parathas consist of unleavened dough stuffed with a spiced mixture of mashed potato, which is rolled out and cooked on a hot tawa with butter or ghee. Aloo paratha is usually served with butter, chutney, curd or Indian pickles in different parts of northern and western India. Sometimes a glass of lassi is served along with it.
