Gobi Paratha (Stuffed Cauliflower bread)

As Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said "The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain." I was doing the same today :) . I am not sure about others but I really feel lazy on a rainy day. Didn't feel like getting up from comfy sofa and do any of my weekend chores. Didn't feel like spending too much time in kitchen. So thought of making something simple. Searched fridge and luckily found cauliflower. Decided to make Gobi Paratha. Hot parathas, coffee and movies(watched 3 movies by evening :) ). Great way to spend time on a rainy day.

Here is the recipe for the same.


Cauliflower florets
1tbsp of chopped coriander
3 green chilies finely chopped( you can reduce as per your spice level)
1tsp of chat masala
salt as per taste


1 cup of wheat flour.
1tbsp oil


Mix the flour with salt, 1tsp of oil and water to make it like nice soft dough. Knead the dough and keep it aside.

Grate cauliflower. Mix grated florets, chopped coriander, green chilies, chat masala and salt. Make small balls of the mixture.

Method 1:
Take the dough and divide into small balls. Roll the dough into small round shaped dusting with flour to avoid sticking onto the platform.

Place cauliflower mixture bring the ends to the center from 4 to 5 points. Close the ends properly so that the mixture will not come out.

Dust with flour and gently roll into flat bread approximately 5" to 6" diameter.

Method 2:
Take the dough and roll the dough into thin roti. Spread the cauliflower mixture evenly on the roti. Brush small amount of water on the edges and cover with another roti. Make sure you seal the edges properly For this method you don't have to make small rounds of the cauliflower mixture.

On a hot griddle or pan place paratha on it. Cook both sides till it turns golden color drizzling little bit of oil or ghee.

Delicious yummy Gobi paratha is ready to be served with raita( I made boondi raita today) or plain yogurt or any curry.
