aloo paratha recipe

Even though aloo paratha or aloo parota (that's how it is pronounced in Karnataka) is a North Indian delicacy, these days aloo paratha is very well in practice through out Karnataka or through out South India. How North Indians like our dosa, idli and sambar, we love their parathas, rotis and north indian curries.

But I want to mention one important point that in Karnataka most of the north indian recipes are modified with a south indian blend, which I feel more tastier than the original recipe. May be same thing even they also say or feel about our recipes. Anyway lets get on to the recipe. Please note that no readymade powders or onions or garam masala are used in this aloo paratha recipe instead fresh spices are used. But it really tastes awesome. I would say its a must try recipe.
