Aloo methi stuffed paratha recipe - Potato methi paratha

Aloo methi stuffed paratha recipe - One of my common practice is to make stuffed parathas or mix and roll theplas at least 2 to 3 times a week, so that kids have vegetables with roti simultaneously. I have already posted few parathas and theplas recipes earlier. But aloo methi paratha is my all time favorite. It has mild fenugreek leaves flavor and soft texture on account of finely mashed potatoes. 

One can eat ghee applied hot parathas along with some yogurt and pickle. You don't need any side dish to go with it.  Some chutney powder mix with yogurt also works wonder with this paratha. This is awesomely delicious and filling, something different than  regular chapati and subzi. You can also pack it in a lunch box.
