Here are few tips to make perfect aloo paratha or achari aloo paratha:
Make smooth and soft dough. Apply little oil after kneading the dough and let it rest for 15-20 minutes before making parathas. This will make soft parathas.
I prefer grating potatoes rather than breaking them with hands while using them for stuffing. That will make the stuffing smooth and parathas will not break while rolling. roast the potato for a small time to make stuffing so that there is no moisture in the potatoes and they are easy to roll.
Try to make equal size of stuffing balls and dough balls for better taste.
Roll the paratha with very gentle hands.You can add or skip green chillies according to your taste. With the same stuffing you can make basic aloo paratha just skip kalonji (nigella seeds) and achaar masala.Little achari masala goes long way. It gives enough tangy flavor and aroma to stuffing.flavor and aroma to stuffing.
