Gobi Paratha

Parathas are an all-time favourite at our home.
So I try to make different kinds of parathas every now and then.
Recently I have been making Gobi -Parathas a lot!
I dont follow any particular recipe, but whatever I feel like adding ..goes in!
So this is just a basic guideline you can alter the ingredients according to your taste.

To make 4 Gobi Parathas, You will need-

2 cups grated Cauliflower
1 green chilli, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 tsp cumin pwdr
1/4 tsp garam masala pwdr
1/4 tsp dry mango pwdr
salt to taste
2 cups of wheat flour

First of all knead the dough adding salt and water.
It should neither be too soft nor too hard.
Keep it aside for half an hour.

Take a bowl and put in the grated cauliflower, onion, cilantro and all the dry masalas.
Add salt at the end when you are about to roll out the parathas.
Mix all the ingredients well.
Divide this stuffing into 4 equal parts.
Divide the dough also into 4 parts.

Make a ball of one part and roll out a little.
Fill it with stuffing in the centre and roll out again to make a paratha.
Cook on a hot griddle putting oil or ghee on both the sides.
Serve hot with curd or pickle or sauce.

I love parathas but have never made it at home. I satisfy myself with what we eat at restaurants.

Parathas is also fav in our home but lots of work for that so I make only weekend days. Gobi Paratha is very nice dish with tomato curry. Your paratha looks yummy my dear.:))

Looks delicious, but I have one question--do you cook/steam the califlower first before grating it or do you just grate raw califlower and put it into the paratha raw? Thanks in advance. Very nice blog.

Hi r welcome..I grate the raw cauliflower as it gets cooked when you roast the paratha and it does has a slight crunch remaining ..which tates good.
