Tandoori Aloo Paratha, this is what I made this Sunday. Normally my Sunday brunch is something fried like Poori with aloo or Bhature with chana, but this Sunday, I made tandoori aloo paratha. Now why this change in menu….the reason is simple. These days my home menu is governed by mega marathon, I’m taking part into :). Since this is a theme based marathon and my theme for this month long mega marathon is ‘A to Z Indian Flatbreads’, so I cook alphabetically 😀 .
‘T’ being the letter for 20th day, in spite of having many options like taftan, tikkar roti, thepla, tchot etc, I was in search of something that is not new to my family (as on Sunday, I can’t experiment with their tastes 🙂 especially for mom and dad). Then I thought of making tandoori roti. To give it a special Sunday touch, I decided to make Tandoori aloo paratha. Otherwise also, I hadn’t made tandoori aloo paratha for a while. So when I laid these parathas on table, I could see every body enjoying them with butter or curd.
Though I have a gas tandoor, I prefer to make my tandoori roti or paratha in cooker itself. No, it’s not like that you can’t make them in gas tandoor, but this is just my lazy side only. Ifind it hasslesome to take out gas tandoor, clean it and after cooking again clean and keep inside. So if you have gas tandoor or electric tandoor, feel free to use it to make this tandoori aloo paratha.
If you don’t have either, then this step by step method is there to make your parathas in cooker itself.
