Gobhi Ke Parathe

Gobhi ke parathe and Gajar ka halwa are two dishes immensely loved in Bollywood movies. Well, we, the mere mortals love it too. ;-) I already blogged about Broccoli paratha which was actually based on this recipe of gobhi ka paratha. I will write the recipe again, since this actually is the original one! :-)

Gobhi Ke Parathe
Cauliflower Flatbread from Punjab


Oil for shallow frying

For stuffing
1 small head of cauliflower, grated
/2 tsp salt
1 green chili, minced (optional)
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp kitchen king masala
1 tsp ginger, grated
1/2 tsp owa/ajwain/thymol seeds/ajowan/ajmo
1 tsp cumin seeds/jeera
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp dry pomegranate seeds/anardaana, coarsely crushed
2 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped

For paratha
2 cups wheat flour
salt to taste
1 tsp oil

Method -

1. Grate the cauliflower. Sprinkle salt and set aside for 15 minutes. Squeeze water and drain the cauliflower completely.

2. Mix all the ingredients for the stuffing. Check for salt. Set aside.

3. Knead a dough for paratha using wheat flour, salt, water and oil. Cover and keep aside for 20-30 minutes.

4. Make a ball of a dough. Roll into a small round. Put the stuffing on top.

5. Fold and dredge in some flour. Roll into a thick paratha.

6. Shallow fry on a hot tawa/pan/griddle adding oil per your taste till brown spots appear on both the sides.

7. Serve hot with yogurt and pickles.

Note -

1. I used food processor for grating.

2.You can increase or decrease the spices per your own preference.
