Gobhi Paratha – Cauliflower Stuffed Paratha
Stuffed Gobhi Paratha with some dal and yogurt is the classic comfort food. Stuffed paratha is the best way to get loads of vegetables in the diet and can be a filling meal.
Servings: 12 Paratha's
FOR THE PARATHA –
- 3 cups Whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- Warm water As needed to make a soft dough
- 2 teaspoon Oil
- Oil or ghee As needed to make the parathas
- Wheat flour or all-purpose flour To dust when making the parathas
FOR THE STUFFING –
- 1 small Cauliflower Florets removed
- 1 tablespoon Oil
- 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds
- 1 teaspoon Ginger Finely grated
- ½ teaspoon Turmeric powder
- 1 ½ teaspoon Red chili powder
- 1 teaspoon Dhania jeera powder
- 1 teaspoon Garam masala
- 2 teaspoon Aamchur powder
- to taste Salt
- a handful Cilantro Finely chopped
TO MAKE THE STUFFING –
Remove the florets from the cauliflower and place them in very hot water for about 5 minutes. Drain the water and then pat it dry. This removes any dirt or worm from the cauliflower.
Now place the cauliflower in a food processor and process it until it is fine and crumbly. You could grate the cauliflower using a fine grater as well. Make sure that the pieces are very small since that will be really helpful when rolling out the parathas.
In a pan, heat the oil and add the cumin seeds. Once the seeds crackle, add the ginger and fry for about 10 seconds.
Add the cauliflower and all the other spices along with salt and mix well. Cook over low to medium flame for about 5-7 minutes. Keep stirring often to avoid burning. Add the chopped cilantro at the end and mix well.
Let the mixture cool down entirely before making parathas.
TO MAKE THE GOBHI PARATHA –
Make about 12 equal sized balls from the dough. Working with one ball at a time, roll it into a small disc. When rolling focus on making the center thicker than the sides.
Place a heaped tablespoon or two of the cauliflower mixture in the center of the disc.
Bring the sides together and then pinch and seal.
Dust with wheat flour or all purpose flour and roll it out into a thin disc. Make sure you apply gentle pressure. The filling might seep out for a couple of them until you get a hang of how much filling is the right amount.
Cook it on a hot tawa applying enough oil or ghee on both sides. Cook until it is golden brown and then remove.
Serve with dal, pickle and yogurt. It is best served when steaming hot.
