Aloo paratha is a typical indian flatbread usually stuffed with mashed potato. My husband is a huge fan of indian food and this weekend I wanted to surprise him with a little bit healthier aloo paratha recipe. This is my recipe version for a nourishing dairy free indian flatbread.
I inspired my recipe from the naan bread recipe in the Indian for Everyone cookbook: The Home Cook’s Guide to Traditional Favorites. The first swap I did was to replace the wheat white flour by a 50/50 mix of nourishing spelt and wholegrain spelt flour to boost the dough with fibre and nutrient. Then I swap the potatoes by sweet potatoes less carbs and more fibre too. I added lots of cooked spinach in the mashed kumara and a few pieces of paneer cheese in some breads – very optional but really tasty for the cheese lovers. Finally, I used coconut oil to rub onto the bread insted of ghee or butter.
Those bread are simply delicious very crispy with a soft filling full of spices flavour. The turmeric powder gives a lovely yellow colour to the filling. I really think I will make those again for Diwali festival this week. We eat those with a vegan bok choy curry that I am often cooking for dinner – recipe here. I added some paneer cheese in some of them but the recipe works perfectly without cheese as well.
It is a very simple recipe to make even if you are not used to make bread, you can not failed this one. I had slightly too much filling and I store it in a plastic box in the fridge. We eat the leftover of filling with a green salad the next day. As usual this is some steps by steps picture to make those lovely bread easy to make in your own kitchen. Enjoy and Happy diwali festival! Carine.
