These are busy times! Most of us are working and hardly have time to prepare a full meal every day. In such cases, it helps to prepare and stock up some items in the freezer when we find time, so that we can put together a quick meal on busy days.

This recipe shows you How to Freeze Aloo Parathas. First, prepare these mouth-wateringly tasty parathas as mentioned in the recipe. The appetizing aroma and lovely texture will tempt you to eat them right away. If you manage to overcome that urge, you can proceed to the stage of packing and freezing them!

To get it right, you need to cool the parathas completely, then pack them as mentioned in the recipe, and freeze them. We have not used onions because it reduces the shelf life.

If you follow this recipe, the parathas will last for at least one month in the freezer. Also, you must not stuff too many things in the freezer as that will reduce the efficiency and lead to spoilage.

When cooking the frozen paratha do you thaw them in the fridge or on the kitchen counter first? Or, can the frozen paratha be put on the tawa directly from the freezer?

Though without onions, these parathas taste excellent. I did not make these parathas for freezing them but for dinner and I loved this recipe.
