I love rains….and look forward to the arrival of monsoons. I recently made Gobhi (Cauliflower) Parathas for breakfast and they were a perfect match for the lovely weather we have here in Hyderabad!
1 medium sized Gobhi ( Cauliflower) grated
Salt to Taste
1/4 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Red chilly powder
2 Green chillies, chopped finely
2 tbsp Cilantro
1 tbsp Ginger (paste)
1/4 tbsp thymol seeds(Ajwain powder )
3 cups Wheat flour
Salt to taste
Water As needed
Oil for frying parathas
Add salt to wheat flour. Add water and knead to stiff dough. Cover and keep aside.
Mix the ingredients mentioned above for filling. Some people like to shallow fry this mixture and cook until the cauliflower is tender. However I skip frying the filling as it increases the oil content in parathas.
Take some dough and roll out two small chapattis (roughly the same size), spread the stuffing on one of these chapattis and use the other chapatti to cover this base.
Roll this with a rolling pin and dust liberally with more flour as you are rolling. When done, pat out the excess flour.
Heat a tava and fry the gobhi paratha both sides to crispy and brown. Put some oil over the paratha as you do this.
Serve the stuffed paratha hot with dhania chutney/curd/pickle.
