Amritsari Aloo Paratha | How to make Aaloo Paratha Amritsari Style

Amritsari Aloo Paratha

Amritsari Aloo Paratha is one of the popular Street Food available and a common breakfast dish offered by the Street vendors.The regular Aloo Paratha is made with basic spices and mashed aloo. Whereas this version of paratha has the special Amritsari spic mix added.

When Vaishali had shared it for Raksha Bandhan special breakfast, I have been eagerly waiting to make it.

I totally skipped the fact that Vaishali mentioned about the outer layer being made with all purpose flour and flaky with the dough is like a puff pastry. Each layer is greased with ghee, made into a big ball and again from that they pinch out smaller balls.

Had I remembered it ahead, I would have surely done it the same way. After having made with the regular wheat flour, I once again read the post to realize this mistake. No issues, I am all for making it again with that part included!

The paratha comes out really good and is spicy because of the special spice mix added to the potatoes. I was so glad that Vaishali was able to decipher the spice mix masala. As she said the clicks hardly convey how delicious it was. That platter is even more special because I have served it with a North Indian Mixed Vegetable Pickle that Vaishali got for me. Hubby dear always tells me that I should be serving the parathas with North Indian Pickles and not the spicy Andhra Pickle, which is more dominating.

This was one delicious breakfast or as in our case, our dinner!

For the second day of Breakfast across different places, I have this sinful Amritsari Aloo Paratha.

  1. I made these Amritsari paratha few years back and remember that they were absolutely delicious. You are tempting me to try these yummy parathas again some time soon.

  2. The Amritsari masala sounds like something I should make and keep handy. The parathas look so good, Valli. And I too feel that North Indian pickles go much better with parathas than our South Indian pickles do.

  3. I’m make aloo paratha very often and this would be a nice variation. I love amrtsari aloo dish and this one would be a perfect dish by itself without any need for sides.

  4. Valli , now the flaky ones can be made for the mega BM..LOL. this paratha tastes amazing ,and you have done a awesome job on it….. the spice mix lends such a lovely flavor na.

  5. Now this is making me rethink my list for April!!! Love it, such a filling breakfast! U have beautifully presented it valli! The whole setup makes me hungry!!! And your hubby is right in a way, andhra pickles do dominate in such platters!
