Aloo Paratha is like the absolute favourite at our home and the easiest of all stuffed Indian breads as well. It hardly needs any preps and gets done in literally no time. And yes a true paratha is eaten with yoghurt/curd and some tangy pickle.

This is a breakfast item at almost any Punjabi (North Indian) home or can be paired with any curry during lunch or dinner as well.

Do you have any favorite stuffed bread that you like?
