Stuffed Aloo Paratha

i took pic while making it coz no one seems to believe that i am actually cooking all this :-(

I remember the first time i made chappati ,July 19th 2006 ..
My youngest sis told my MIL that i'm an expert cook , i'm a poori specialist ..
I dint even know what flour to use let alone making pooris...
To my wonder my first roti did come out pretty well...
I remember how anxious i was ... How many times i turned the roti lest it should get burnt .
How happy i was to see the roti puffing up ....
I guess everyone had such momemts ..
After all first time is always special ;-)
I cant help a smile when i think Me is going to post recipe for Aloo paratha..

Salt - as reqd
1) For Stuffing Heat oil , add all powders , fry well. Add mashed potato and mix.

The stuffing should be really dry. Otherwise it will be difficult to make the paratha.
2) Mix well all the items for paratha other than milk.
Now add milk and make a dough. Set aside for 30 minutes.
Take a ball of dough and roll it into a thick small puri.
3) Take a ball of the stuffing, place it in the center of the puri.
Fold the edges of the puri such that it covers the stuffing.Pinch the egdes.
4) The stuffing should be sealed within the puri.
5) Now u must be having a ball of dough , stuffed with potato .. yummy
Sprinkle flour, Roll the ball into a paratha as thin as u can.
While rolling do not apply too much pressure. Roll from edge to centre slowly.
6) Heat a pan to medium. Place paratha on pan. When one side is brown turn and cook other side. Smear butter on paratha and fry. The paratha will become crisp.
7) Smear some of the egg and fry till egg is cooked.
