Gobhi Paratha

Ahhh another paratha which I just love!!! Me being a north Indian want some or the other form of roti/paratha in my luch and dinner everyday. Since my husband also loves Parathas I try to make them atleast twice a week.
As everyone knows Cauliflower is a very versatile vegetable
(atleast for me..I cook them with almost everything..hehehe). Like potato you can use it in mix veg, aloo gobhi, gobhi matar, pulav, gobhi manchurian and of course gobhi paratha. I love gobhi so I will be posting loads of recipes of gobhi in the blog. All the gobhi lovers can check this blog from time to time for other gobhi recipes :) Lets make yummy gobhi parathas..

4-5 Parathas

Wheat Flour – 3cups
Finely chopped (approx ½ inch pieces) cauliflower – 2cups
Finally chopped Green chili – 1tbsp
Grated Ginger – 1tbsp
lemon juice(optional)- 1 tsp
Garam Masala powder – 1tsp
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Red chili powder – 1tsp
Chopped green coriander – 2tbsp
Oil/butter/ghee for roasting
Salt to taste

Note- One can add 1/2 cup of boiled and grated potatoes in the filling to avoid the filling to spill out while rolling the parathas. Vegans avoid ghee/butter as it is made of milk.

For Dough
Mix the flour, salt and water. Make the dough and keep it covered for 15-20 min (It will make the dough soft). Now knead the dough well (approx 5 min).And it’s ready for stuffing. This makes 4-5 parathas.

In a pan take 2 tbsp of oil. Add green chilies, cumin seeds, grated ginger, and cauliflower pieces. Mix it well, cover it and cook for 1 min. Now add turmeric and salt in that and cover it and cook till it becomes tender. Now put garam masala and chili powder and cook it without covering it for few min so that it becomes dry. Ones its done add green coriander and lemon juice and mix it well. Allow it to cool naturally. Ones it cools down mash it well. It’s ready for stuffing.

Take a small portion of dough. Roll it in small disk (puri). Take it in the Middle of your palm. Put approx 2tbsp filling at the center of the in the disk/ puri, cover the stuffing from all the side with disk/puri and roll it smoothly. Roast it well on both the sides by applying oil. Before serving apply a teaspoon of butter(optional) and serve it with chilled curd, salad and pickle.
