Stuffed parathas are loved by all. Aloo/ Potatoes are popular as stuffing for aloo parathas.
Many varieties are available and parathas are named solely based on the stuffing.Today I share with you all Gobi paratha or flat bread with cauliflower stuffing.

Water as required to form dough
Oil-1 tsp
Ajwain/Carrom seeds-a pinch

Other ingredients:
Ghee to smear on parathas.
Whole wheat flour /chapathi atta for dusting.

Recipe:

Preparation of stuffing, dough and parathas:
  1. Grated cauliflower needs to be mixed with salt and kept for some time say 20-30 mins. Water oozes out from the cauliflower by then.

  10. Once cooled stuffing is ready to go into the parathas.
  11. In a bowl add flour,salt and oil and mix well.Now add carrom seeds and enough water and prepare a smooth pliable dough.Coat oil to prevent drying out of the dough.Let it rest on the counter for a while.
  12. Take a lemon sized ball out of the dough which had been resting for a while and press using hands to flatten little.
  13. Just flatten it using chapathi roller upto 3" diameter and now to this flattened disc add 2 tsp of stuffing mixture prepared.
  14. Enclose the stuffing and seal them within it so that stuffing is real safe inside.
  15. Now just flatten this ball.
  16. Dust it with wheat flour.
  17. Roll out into parathas with 6" diameter.
  18. Place on a very hot tawa and cook one side till small bubbles arise on top.
  19. Now flip and cook other side till brown spots appear.
  20. Apply ghee on the top surface.
