Punjabi Aloo Paratha

Aloo paratha is the ultimate Sunday brunch meal. Every Sunday we religiously sat down in front of our favourite tv show as a family and enjoyed this awesome brunch. I am the only one I know who enjoys this traditional Punjabi delicacy with Heinz tomato ketchup. I swear it though, the combination taste's delicious. Everyone loves a warm, paratha on a lazy Sunday morning and I encourage you to make this recipe yours.

Hope you have a wonderful meal!
