Aloo paratha is the most popular break fast food of North India.  Even if it has its origin in North India, it is loved by almost every Indian.  Aloo paratha is stuffed paratha with a spicy mixture.  So it tastes yummy and people enjoy eating it on outings and especially on weekends.

My experience of eating aloo paratha in Baddi(Himachal Pradesh when I was on tour) was really exiting.  The speciality of aloo paratha that is served in North India is, they are big in size, served with gobs of butter, yogurt and pickles of different type.

It is really a simple recipe and any one at home can try it to enjoy the change in taste.
