Aloo paratha (lit. "potato paratha") is a bread dish originating from India.[1] It is a breakfast dish that is popular in the Indian subcontinent.[2] The recipe is one of the most popular breakfast dishes throughout the western, central and northern regions of India as well as the eastern regions of Pakistan. Aloo parathas consist of unleavened dough rolled with a mixture of mashed potato and spices, which is cooked on a hot tawa with butter or ghee.[3] Aloo paratha is usually served with butter, chutney, curd, butter milk or Indian pickles, depending on the area of northern and western India in which it is served.
