What better bliss than having some hot paratha with some fresh butter to top it off with some tangy pickle and curd. If you can’t understand the joy, you really need to give this a try. Stuffed Indian breads are the best way of disguising any veggie that you aren’t a big fan of and proudly eating it way 😉
What’s your favourite stuffed paratha? I love paneer, egg, daal, brocolli, carrot almost all of them. Let’s share.
Ohh yes, recipe is below:
Gobi Paratha (Cauliflower stuffed Indian Flat Bread)
To make the filling
Wash the cauliflower very well. And chop it into medium sized florets. Check well for any worms.
In a food processor, pulse the cauliflower florets into small sized florets (almost grated but not into a paste).
Meanwhile in a pan, add oil and temper cumin seeds & carom seeds.
Saute chopped onion, green chilli and then add the grated cauliflower to this.
After sauteing for some 5 to 7 mins, add the ground masala, salt and toss everything well.
Let this cook for some 10 mins till the raw smell from cauliflower disappears,
Now add the chopped coriander to this and let this rest till completely cooled.
To make the dough
In a food processor, add the whole wheat flour, salt, oil and keep adding water based on need, when the processor is kneading the dough.
This dough can be kneaded using hands, and the same process of checking the water based on need should be done.
Let this dough rest for atleast 15-20 mins before using. This lets the gluten relax and makes better parathas.
Making the Paratha
Divide the dough into equal 4 to 6 dough balls not too small.
Roll the dough using some loose flour on both sides. Add the filling in the centre and then seal the dough ball from all sides.
Flatten the filled dough and then roll slowly with not much of pressure and then apply loose wheat flour on both sides and roll into a flat bread.
Add this bread/paratha to a flat plan. Roast/bake it on either sides for atleast 3-4 mins (till you see brown spots). Now add one tsp oil on each side and cook it well for another 3 to 4 mins on each side.
Now enjoy this with yoghurt/curd and some pickle.
