Gobi Paratha/Cauliflower Stuffed Paratha

Gobi Paratha/Cauliflower Stuffed Paratha

I just realized I don't have many Roti or Naan recipe on the blog even though I make them almost everyday. I am not sure as to why I did not. Anyway, lets start with Gobi Paratha as Cauliflower is available in abundance in Chennai now.

For Filling
Cauliflower - 2 Cups (Washed,Cleaned and Grated)
Onion - 1 (Medium, finely Chopped)
Green Chillies - 4 (Finely Chopped)
Garlic - 10-12 (Finely Chopped)
Ginger - 1/2 Inc (Finely Chopped)
Cumin Powder - 1/2 Teaspoon
Garam Masala - 1/4 Teaspoon
Red Chilly Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Corinader Leaves - Few Sprigs
Salt and Oil

For the outer Layer (Roti/Paratha)
Wheat Flour - 2 Cups
Salt and Oil



In a mixing bowl, place the Wheat Flour and Salt and add enough amount of water to make a smooth pilable dough to make the Roti/Paratha.Divide them into equally sized balls. Keep this aside covered with a Damp kitchen towel.

Filling (First Method)
In a mixing Bowl, add all the ingredients except oil and mix them well. Divide this into equally sized balls.
You can use this recipe if you don't have too much of time in hand.

Filling (Second Method)
In a pan, add a tablespoon and once the oil is heated add Onions and cook till they are done. Then in the time interval of 30 seconds add the other ingredients in the Filling list one by one. Saute them at regular intervals. Saute till the Raw flavor of the masala is gone.Keep this aside.

Once this mixture is in the room temperature, divide them into equally sized Ball.

Now, Lets make the Parathas

Take the rolling board and rolling pin. Dust them with Wheat Flour and place the Wheat ball on the rolling board and using the rolling pin make the rotis. Now place the Cauliflower filling in the centre. Now pull the corners of the Roti and cover it. Now using your hands, flatten it by dusting it as required.

Now place this on the rolling board and make the Roti and cook them on the Tawa till it is done.

Smear it with Ghee or Butter. (Optional)
