Aloo Paratha

P1020060


Hope you all had a good weekend, here this weekend it was Summer fair in lil A's nursery for some fundraising. I really liked the whole idea of the fair,each class in the school has a stall and all the money raised goes towards the Schools fund. Nursery were asked to put a stall with kids toys/book and clothes which were donated by the parents and unlike back home, here buying used things is very common,so its a kind of recycling the toys,books and clothes ! The best part is I found one of his favourite toy from Disney cars movie in the stall and since I was volunteering in the stall before anyone could buy, I bought it for lil A and the smile on his face when he got it was priceless,it has been 3 days and till now he hasnt kept it anywhere...one pound well spent !!

Coming to todays recipe its Aloo paratha...I have been making this since ages,but never thought about blogging it till now..but since laziness has crawled on to me these days ,nothing much exciting is cooking in my kitchen,hopefully I will be back in action soon , till then please bare with for uploading simple recipes :)
