Parathas are a popular breakfast item in North India. A paratha is nothing but a whole wheat flat bread stuffed with a filling made of mashed/grated vegetables or chopped greens, spices and herbs. I love making parathas as it does not need any side dish, just some plain yogurt and pickle is enough. Parathas are great to pack for lunchbox for kids and adults too. Also see my aloo paratha, palak paratha and mooli paratha recipes.
Gobi aka cauliflower paratha is one of my favorite parathas. These parathas are stuffed with grated cauliflower, onion and spices. Making perfect paratha needs some practice. Even now, some days my parathas don't come out so well. So instead of the traditional way of rolling, stuffing and folding, I stuffed the filling between 2 rolled out chapathi dough. I find the latter method better in many ways. First of all it's easy and you don't have to worry of parathas breaking. Secondly, you can add more stuffing and it remains soft for a long time. Serve the parathas hot with yogurt / raita and pickle.
Notes and Tips
- Make sure all sides are sealed well and do not apply too much pressure while rolling the paratha.
- Adjust the spices according to your taste preference.
