Aloo Paratha and Awards

Varsha has given me this Goodie Bag for sending eight entries for the event Recipes for rest of us dessert. Thanks Varsha. I am bouncing in joy.



Whenever I make Aloo paratha , I can’t forget the one which I had in Manali. We went for our honeymoon in February, there in Kufri full of snow and roadside a man was selling aloo parathas, hot hot parathas with butter on top, with mango pickle YUmmmmm…, still I remember the taste.

I feel this is comfort food, easy to make if atta is ready. Nowadays we get ready to use aloo mash in the market. My kids love this. When I fast on Fridays I have to eat without any sour things, I prepare this without onion and have. When my in laws went to USA for the first time, they are not sure whether they will like the food in the flight. I made this and my father in law liked it, he had in the Frankfurt Airport. This time also I made it for my sister in law. So I am sending this to Food on Wheels hosted by Taste of Mysore.

I give this with a salad and curd for my daughter to school for lunch.
