Falaari Aloo Paratha

Falaari Paratha: A gluten free aloo paratha made with tapioca flour and some mild spices. As I told in my previous post that we do not get much variety of fasting flours here. Yesterday while doing grocery shopping in Asian shop I found Tapioca Flour in the flours section. I picked one pack without much thinking as I knew that I could definitely make something from it that will give the family a break from Buckwheat flour that they have been eating since last five days.


So today morning I tried making the aloo paratha .As the tapioca flour doesn’t have gluten so I added a potato to make the dough.I filled the potato stuffing in between two layers of dough circles as it was a little easy way to make the paratha rather than the regular one. I find it easy to work with the tapioca flour for rolling and doesn’t need any paper or towel for rolling.I just made sure to dust the dough ball with lots of flour and rolled it very gently. The parathas tasted awesome and girls loved eating them.
