Aloo Paratha

I Simply Love Aloo paratha such a filling and perfect recipe and so very flavourful too . Serve it with Yogurt mixed with a little Raw Mango pickle it is the ultimate one !...I usually try lot of different variations esp follow the one which I learnt from my mom most of the time but this time for a change wanted to try out the recipe shared by my dear friend Jayashri Baleri and it was superb ...Ajwain and chaat masala gives such a ultimate flavor  but i have omitted Jeera in the recipe  and I have changed a bit of how it has to be made too :) .....My family loved it have done it twice in a row ...this superb recipe is surely a winner !...Do try this and don't forget to leave in your feedback !
