Aloo Paratha is a dish wish a universal appeal! While north Indians like to have it any time of the day, for breakfast, lunch or dinner, south Indians too have borrowed this dish from the north and incorporated it into their supper and dinner menus. What makes these whole wheat parathas so appealing is the soft and tasty filling of potatoes flavoured with peppy spice powders and crunchy onions. Green chillies spike up the flavour of the stuffing, while amchur gives it an enjoyable tinge of tanginess. These parathas taste best when served hot with pickles and curds, but they may also be carried in a dabba.
