Aloo Mosaru Bajji (Raitha) Chapati/Paratha

Aloo/Potato/Batata Mosaru Bajji is Aloo Raitha or Aloo curd curry. Aloo Raitha goes well with all the main dishes as one of the side dish and it is healthy because aloo is cooked or steamed with its skin.

The idea of mixing aloo curd curry just flashed me when I wanted to prepare plain chapati and thought aloo mosaru bajji can be used as side dish for chapatis. I was not that happy to eat chapatis with this aloo raitha. (This was prepared for afternoon lunch along with sambar). So the idea flashes and I just mixed aloo raitha with wheat flour added some spices and here it is with soft, yummy and spicy chapatis.
No Onions or Garlic used in this dish. 
Lets see the recipe Now ;

Things Needed :

Aloo Mosaru Bajji/ Raitha : 1 Cup
Wheat flour : 2 Cups or little more
Cumin Seeds/Jeera : 1/2 Teaspoon
Red Chilly Powder : 1/2 Teaspoon
Coriander Leaves : 1 Handful
Salt : As required
Oil : 2 to 3 Tablespoons
Water : If required

Method : 

1. Take a big bowl, put wheat flour, cut coriander leaves, red chilly powder and salt.
2. Add Jeera and mix all the ingredients well.
3. Add Aloo Mosaru bajji and mix it well. Add water if required and prepare dough.

4. Divide the dough into small portions. Roll them as ball shape.
5. Take a bowl and put 3 to 4 tablespoons of dry wheat flour and keep it aside. (Dipping the small size of dough before rolling helps to roll the chapati easily. (It does not stick to the plank or roller).

6. Take a small portion of the dough and dip in dry wheat flour and roll it as chapati.
7. Keep a tava/pan on the fire and heat. Put rolled chapati on the tava and cook.

8. Add little oil on the top and turn the other side to cook. Just spread some oil on the top.
9.Turn it again for a second and shift cooked chapati to a plate.Soft and smooth chapati is ready to serve.
10. Repeat the same with remaining dough.

11. Serve Aloo Mosaru Bajji Chapati with the curry you prepared.
12. Add a spoon of ghee on the top before serving. (Optional).

Note :

Do mix all the ingredients nicely with aloo mosaru bajji and then add water if required.
Adding ghee/oil to dough while mixing is optional.
Adding garam masala/chat masala or any other spice is optional. ( I have not added).
Adding curd and potato makes the chapati soft and fluffy,
Do not use a spoiled Aloo Mosaru Bajji, it might get you into trouble. You might get stomach upset and vomiting and other ill health.
Time : 20 Minutes.
Serves :  3 to 4
