Aloo Paratha

Scrub 2 medium russet potatoes (10–12 oz.), then pat dry. Pierce each potato 5 times on each side with a fork, then microwave in a microwave-safe bowl, turning over halfway through, 10 minutes. (Alternatively, place potatoes in a large saucepan without pricking and pour in water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook until a fork easily pierces flesh, 20–25 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold running water, and let cool 10 minutes.)
