Step by step of Aloo ki roti recipe with photos of each step.
Inspiration for this recipe came from Tarla Dalal’s book ‘Joy’s Of Vegetarian cooking’. What might interest you is that, I made this roti when I was only 14 year old or even younger. Potatoes were easy to handle as a kid and this was the only recipe, I felt, I can cook after going through her whole book. My mother was out to work and my brother loved these ‘Aloo ki Roti’ (potato flabreads). I made them since.
Now, my kids love it. This makes super quick meal when you don’t have anything in hand and kids are hungry. The handling of roti is bit tricky since it gets sticky. Don’t worry, I’ll share all tips in step by step so you can make it with ease.
Of course, it’s a simple recipe very similar to aloo ka paratha so can use same spices that you normally mix in aloo paratha and vary the recipe to your taste. Lastly, you can also use leftover aloo to make this roti.
Do give it a try, they simply melt in the mouth. Since, this aloo ki roti in very soft, you can give it to your toddlers; of course with less spices.
