Parathas are considered to be one of the staple food of Punjabi cuisine. It is a bread dish originating from the Indian subcontinent. For Punjabi’s, an Ideally breakfast will always have parathas in it with lots of ghee for richness and a glass full of chaach or lassi.

Parathas are generally stuffed with vegetables and the recipe with most popular filling is Aloo (Potato) Parathas. It is one of the simple and easy-to-make paratha recipes that roughly take 45 Min, making it one of those tasty dishes that can be prepared for breakfast.
History of Aloo Paratha
Aloo Paratha is a dish originated from India, and one of the most popular breakfast dishes throughout western, central and northern regions of India. While the history of parathas can be really confusing, due to complication with its origin, but one of the closest pieces of evidence shows that this recipe was an innovation derived by another flatbread called Roti with aloo (potato) in late 1800.
It was a recipe that traveled from Maharashtra to the northern states of India. Later the Punjabis added spices to the Paratha and tossed it with Ghee and butter to enrich its flavor and complimented it with curd. But Punjabis have really evolved it from Aloo Roti to Aloo Paratha, it became the most cherished and beloved dish in India when it was given a Punjabi touch.

Hebbars’s Recipe of Aloo Paratha is a little different than ours, she used sweet potato instead of a regular potato. Thus sweetness in that Aloo Paratha is more than the regular Aloo Paratha.
