Aloo Paratha

The other day while making aloo parathas ,I was thinking about any stuffed dish that I need to make for the last day of BM#59 .All of a sudden I recalled that I hadn’t posted the most favorite aloo paratha on the blog.We eat aloo paratha almost twice a week and still I did not posted it,wow how come ?? I was asking myself the same question.

Mr. H likes hot paratha one after another and doesn’t prefer the stacked one .But to click the pictures I made few at a time and took pictures.By the timeclicks were finished the paratha became cold .He laughingly pointed to me and said yeah I know, now you will only serve the hot one to Mr. blog only.I see we will only get the leftovers .
