Aloo Paratha Indian bread stuffed with potato

Aloo paratha low calorie
This post is dear to me since I’m dedicating it to my friend Zainab. She is from Pakistan and saying that means she is very particular about the flavor of food. Zainab is used to spicy and flavorful food, but at the same time, likes to keep things light. I know that she love’s Aloo paratha, but not fond of its calories. Today I made a lighter version and I bet no one can suspect it’s low in calorie.

Making Aloo Paratha.

Potatoes have a bad name when it comes to eating healthy, and that’s just so wrong. This vegetable helped me a lot while on my journey to healthy eating. Having potatoes in your diet can help fill you up for hours, so no more snacking, but if you still have those bad thoughts and ideas about potatoes read this:

One medium potato (5.3 oz) with the skin contains:

  • 45 percent of the daily value for vitamin C
  • More potassium (620 mg) than even bananas, spinach, or broccoli;
  • 10 percent of the daily value of B6;
  • Trace amounts of thiamine, riboflavin, folate, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, and zinc

…and all this for just 110 calories and no fat, sodium or cholesterol.

This information and more can be found at Potato Goodness, please visit this website and I hope you change your mind about this healthy vegetable.
