Gobhi Paratha

Paratha is usually made from whole wheat flour,stuffed with vegetables. the most common stuffing is aloo (potatoes)also stuffings varies from paneer, aloo, cabbage and more.

Stuffed paratha’s could be eaten just by themselves or could be accompanied by pickle, yogurt. I prefer it with curd.

You Need to Have:

For Dough:
 1 cup whole-wheat flour
 1/2 cup water
 salt to taste
For Filling:
 2 cup shredded cauliflower
 1/2 teaspoon ajwain
 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (Jeera)
 1 chopped green chili
 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro (green coriander)
 1/2 teaspoon salt



1. Mix flour, salt and water together to make a soft dough.

3. Set the dough aside and cover with cloth. Let the dough rest for at least 20 minutes.


Grate  Cauliflower and mix salt to shredded cauliflower. Keep it aside for 20 mins.

Squeeze the cauliflower mix in order to take out as much water as possible.
This is most important step. if excess water is not squeezed, filling will come out while rolling it.

Mix all filling ingredients together by hand. After mixing let the filling settle for about 5 minutes.

Roll the dough into circle. Put the filling in the center. Seal by pulling the edges of the rolled dough together to make a ball.
Roll the balls by sprinkling wheat flour.

Place the paratha over the hot tava .Cook paratha on both sides.

Serve hot with curd and pickle.(I sprinkled chat masala on curd)
