When I get together with other sourdough bakers I always try to get them to try something new and challenging that we can tackle together. My daughter Leah, an excellent sourdough baker, and I tried Aloo Paratha – sourdough, potato filled Indian flatbreads.
I made a pretty ordinary whole wheat sourdough and Leah made Indian spiced mashed potatoes. Then the fun began.
The potatoes are placed in the center of small disk of dough.
With the potato now in the center, the dough is rolled into a large flat disk.
Each time the paratha is turned over it is brushed with ghee.
OK,,,,,how did the taste?
So so good. How could they not be: fried dough, spicy potatoes, a schmear of ghee…
