Aloo Paratha | Stuffed Paratha

Initially i planned to do atleast 2 thali dishes for this week theme, but i couldn't do it so far.Start of this week, we had a sudden plan of getting out on travel and we thought of return back in 3 days, but it extended for a week, so here i'm with my backup dish, the famous "Aloo Paratha" from Punjab Cuisine.
My hubby's most favorite paratha, so i prepared this frequently. Even with plain raita , this paratha tastes awesome.When i started to make parathas, i found it very difficult to roll it, always the stuffing pop out from the dough and the whole  thing became a mess. 
After lot of practising and understood the knack , now i can say it's one of the easiest & tastiest dish to make in less time.
