Aloo Paratha

I have always been an ardent fan of Mommie's aloo parathas. After many years, Loyd also joined my league. We both have a voracious appetite when it comes to aloo parathas. Other than eating whatever my Mom cooked, I never made any serious attempt to learn from her, let alone aloo parathas.



One of my friend Indrani used to tell me that I should learn to cook from Mom or else I will miss it after years. But I never gave ears to her. yaar ....... sure I miss it.

We left home for the greener pastures. Whirlwind of responsibilities followed topped by an urge to eat home cooked food. Those were the days of measuring cups and endless calls to Mom for recipes. She put an end to the calls by going that extra mile starting a blog  http://cookingatmayflower.blogspot.com/ for me. BOOOY! That sure was an easy way out for me. Thanks Mommie, I will always treasure it .....


When I saw Viji's ongoing event - Feast your guru. I thought it is now or never to learn those perfect parathas from the master and feast her. Finally can say, I hone the skill of making aloo parathas.

Wheat flour - 2 cups
Maida - 1 cup
