Aloo rotis,like the name suggests and like we all know are Rotis made with aloo/potato filling . But like i promised,this is very easy to make but with the same yummy taste. So no tedious filling up the dough and rolling it . It’s just a mix in ,all easy recipe.My friend in college used to bring it in her lunch box frequently and even after all these decades I have never forgotten the taste .

Chilli powder,turmeric powder,jeera powder,coriander powder,and salt -as desired
Oil/ghee to make Rotis
Add oil in pan , splutter jeera , asafoetida,sauté green chillies and onion . When done add in the mashed potato and stir well .Add all the powders and stir well to combine .Cook closed for a couple of mins without adding water just to combine all the ingredients well . Cool to room temperature.
Add the atta flour to the potato mixture , add a few jeera , salt , gingely oil ( it makes the Rotis soft) and combine it all in to make a smooth , soft dough . Add water if needed . Keep the roti dough aside for at least half an hour .
Roll out Rotis a little thicker than normal Rotis and cook on medium flame on both sides adding ghee or oil as it cooks.
