Gobi Stuffed Paratha | Cauliflower stuffed Indian flat Bread

When we get bored of regular chapathis,I always try out these stuffed parathas.Though aloo parathas are my favorite but I do try out some other stuffings like egg parathas,gobi parathas,carrot parathas & so on.These are very rich and delicious flat bread that can be served with plain or boondi raitha.I love them very hot smeared with ghee.This time I have tried this gobi(cauliflower) parathas,the stuffing can't be shaped in balls but a very flavorful one with the flavor of mint & the mild tanginess of lemon.Try & enjoy!!!


Ingredients
for dough
whole wheat flour 2 cups
salt to taste
water as required

for filling
cauliflower grated 2 cups
onion 1 small or 1/2 of large chopped fine
ginger shredded fine 1 tsp
green chillies 2 chopped fine
cilantro 4-5 sprigs
mint leaves 3-4/ dry mint  1/4 tsp
cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
lemon juice 1 tsp /amchoor(dry mango) powder 1/2 tsp
oil 2tsp

to smear on top
ghee /oil


Method
  • For dough-Mix the salt in the wheat flour well,add water as required and knead the dough as for chapathis using food processor or with hands.Leave it covered.
  • For filling- Heat oil in a pan and crackle the cumin seeds when hot.Add the turmeric powder and add the onions.saute until slightly browned and cooked.Add in the green chillies,shredded ginger and grated cauliflower.Add salt and cook covered on low medium flame for 5 mins.Add the chopped cilantro and dry mint/mint leaves.Give a quick stir.Check if done or else give another 2-3 minutes till the water is evaporated and the cauliflower is 3/4th cooked.(Don't wait till it becomes mushy,retain the crunchiness slightly).Add the lemon juice and mix well,adjust salt.Let the water content completely dry up.Put off flame.Let it cool.
(the stuffing)
  • Make small (but larger than regular chapathi)balls of the dough.Dust with flour and roll in a 3' small circle.Place the stuffing about 2 tsp/1tbsp in the centre and seal the sides by bringing it together.Now dust the ball in flour and place the sealed side up and start rolling again carefully.
  • Heat a tawa/ griddle and place the paratha when it is hot.Flip and cook both sides,and smear ghee on top on both sides and remove from flame.
  • Repeat the same step for other parathas and cook again.Serve hot with raitha !!!
Servings~ 8 parathas



NOTES
* Adding lemon juice/amchoor powder is optional but it definitely adds to the flavor.
* Adding mint gives a nice aroma and it also helps in  digestion.
* If you have trouble adding the spoonful gobi filling,then add a mashed potato to the filling to shape it into balls if you wish that way.
