Aloo Cheese Paratha

Kalonji Aloo Paratha
Kalonji, also known as onion seeds, are generally added to snacks like samosas. It gives a unique taste to the dish. So why not add it in aloo paratha? It’s a great addition as the flavour of kalonji takes the Paratha to the next level, trust us! You can make this Paratha in three ways: add kalonji in the dough, knead it, and make it or you can add it to your stuffing that you will fill in the Paratha. If you are putting Kalonji in the stuffing, give it a good roast. You can also garnish it on the top of the paratha before taking it off the tawa. The flavour of roasted kalonji and aloo paratha is heavenly. You can include kalonji in aloo ka paratha and give a new twist to it.
Palak Aloo Paratha
You guessed it right! You can call this green aloo paratha too! For all those picky eaters, if you can’t have spinach directly, have this. It won’t feel anything as if you have spinach. Same as pink Paratha, make a puree of palak, mix it in the dough, and then stuff the aloo and roast it. Your palak Aloo Ka Paratha is ready!
Groundnut Aloo Paratha
Give a Crunchy twist to your regular soft aloo paratha! You might be wondering, how can groundnut and also be together in a paratha, as one among the two is so hard. Just do it as we say and thank us later, just fry the groundnuts in a kadhai without any oil. Once it is cooled down, peel off the outer cover of the groundnut, and give a pulse in a mixer grinder to the nuts. You should have a crunchy powder-like substance. Now mix this with aloo stuffing and roll the parathas, be careful while rolling it out, don’t press too much and once it is done, roast the parathas. That’s it; your crunchy aloo paratha is ready.
Black Pepper Aloo Paratha
Uff Uff Mirchi! Yes! You are going to do this after eating this Kali Mirch ka paratha. But You know what, in the chilling winter, eating such stuff will warm you up! So this winter, instead of having kali mirch in your Kadha, have it in your Aloo Ka Paratha. Add pepper powder to your aloo stuffing and other spices and roll out the parathas. This is it!
