Aloo paratha

Stuffed Parathas are double layered rotis with yummy filling of vegetable or Paneer or even dal sometimes.Aloo parathas  are perfect for a weekend brunch menu which is usually served with curds and pickles.It is a very popular breakfast in North India however i make it only for dinner along with some dal.It is best when eaten hot otherwise it gets a little soggy when kept in the hot case.Initially i used to sturggle  rolling with the stuffing(it used to come out on all sides)but now i can get a perfect round paratha!!!!!!!
