Nepali Style Aloo Parautha Recipe!!

Aloo Parautha used to be our everyday lunch to school. It had been a while since I hadn't made this dish and past weekend I finally decided to make one. I have never tasted Aloo Parautha outside in restaurants or even at friends place. Therefore, recipe below is what I remember eating at home back in Nepal. Without any further due, below is the step by step process of preparing Aloo Parautha :) It is best when eaten with Nepali Style Chicken Curry (Recipe Here), Mutton Curry (Recipe Here), or Fried Lentil (Recipe Here).

Fantastic :x
