Alu Roti (Potato Filled Bread)


1.5 cups whole wheat flour
3 large potatoes
3 hot green chili peppers (chopped)
4 tablespoon cilantro (coriander) leaves (chopped)
4 tablespoon ghee, butter or vegetable oil for frying (optional)
1 teaspoon salt or according to taste

1 Boil the potatoes in their skins and peel.
2 Knead flour with melted ghee, water and two pinch of salt till you get soft dough. Leave dough in a warm place for about half an hour.
3 Add salt, chili peppers, cilantro (coriander) to potato.
4 Divide into about eight portions and roll out in circular disc shape (each about 15cm /6 inches in diameter).
5 Put the potato mix between the two rolled out dough. Roll again to evenly apply potato mix inside the bread.
6 Cook breads in either on a skillet with oil or ghee.
7 Serve hot with Achar or Chutney.
Great bread for both of lunch and dinner as well as breakfast treat.
Add few shredded cheese with potato to make cheesy treat!
The rolling out bread into perfect circular shape will be challenge at first. However, this skill can not be taught and only become better with practice.
