This is my mom's recipe for making aloo(potato )and cheese parathas.Grew up eating them for breakfast and now love making them for my kids.As much as you may be tempted to add more masalas(spices) try to keep it limited to the ingredients listed below for a very authentic flavor.
For the dough:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup water (approximately)
For the stuffing :
2 large Ruset potatoes (baked or boiled and mashed)
2 Swiss cream cheese wedges(like Laughing Cow) or( Amul cheese like my mom used to use)
1/2 tsp garlic pwdr
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper pwdr
To make the dough ,add salt and olive oil to the wheat flour and mix it well. Slowly add water ,a quarter cup at a time and keep kneading the dough till it comes together in one big round lump.Add more water if too dry and sprinkle more flour if too sticky .when it's finally kneaded well ,it should form a big lump and come off easily from the sides and bottom of the mixing bowl and not stick to your fingers .Add 1 tbsp of olive oil and knead it well and keep aside.You can alternating knead the dough in a food processor.
Take a tennis ball size of dough and roll it out in a circle.Place a dollop of the mashed potato and cheese stuffing on one end of the circle as shown in the pic .Roll up the dough towards you to form a roll.Lift it up carefully and tuck the two open ends one on top and another below and shape into a pattie as show above.Sprinkle flour on the rolling board and gently roll out the paratha in to a circle again.Patch up any open sides gently.
Note : There are many ways of stuffing a flatbread but I find my mom's the easiest .
