Mistakes in making Aloo Paratha.

Some people make Aloo Paratha but must make it right because it breaks.

Breakage is primarily due to improper filling or freshly boiled potatoes used in the paratha, so the Aloo Paratha must form properly and break. Always use cold potatoes in filling Aloo Paratha.

Butter and ghee make your Aloo Paratha tastier, but if you like less ghee or butter, you can cook the Aloo Paratha first and then add little ghee or butter and spread it with the help of a silicone brush.
