Bajra nasta | bajra aloo paratha | how to make bajra paratha | paratha recipe

It is a stuffed paratha made with bajra flour and spicy potato stuffing. I also share the tomato chutney recipes which taste great with stuffed paratha. It is usually made for breakfast and even sometimes for lunch and dinner also.

Generally, the stuffed paratha recipe varies from house to house. But I share a very basic recipe in which, I grate boiled potatoes mixed with spices and stuff them into bajra dough, gently tap it, and roast it in ghee. I also share a few tips and the easiest way to make stuffed paratha. Do try this!

The key to making tasty bajra aloo paratha at home are
  • first, made dough with bajra flour. you can add some wheat flour or jowar flour to it. Also, the dough should be soft and smooth, do not knead tight dough.
  • Secondly, take extra precautions while preparing the potato or aloo stuffing. It has to be moist but at the same time not make it watery. You may not be able to stuff it and eventually you may not be able to roll. If it gets a watery texture then add some dry poha powder into the stuffing, so it will absorb water and make the stuffing dry.
  • Lastly, I made paratha by tapping it by hand. beginners can find it difficult with bare hands and I recommend making it with a rolling pin—also roast the paratha on a medium flame for a crispy outer layer.
