I had a large cauliflower residing in my pantry for a long time. I didn’t want to make cauliflower pakoras nor its hybrid Gobi Manchurian. I have heard of Gobi parathas but never have tried or tasted them. Ya you heard me rite. So finally after lots of googling stuck to this recipe and we loved it a lot.
For the dough:
Wheat flour – 2 cups
Water – to knead
Salt – as needed
Oil – 1 tsp (optional)
For the filling:
Minced cauliflower - 1 cup
Onion - 1/4 cup, minced
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Chopped coriander leaves – 2 tbsp
How I Made It
Add salt, oil and sufficient water to the wheat flour and knead to chapathi consistency. Set aside for 30 mins.
Cut the cauliflower into florets. Clean well. Add salt to water and heat the cauliflower in this water till warm. Set aside. After cooled, mince the cauliflower as tiny as possible. I gave it 2-3 pulses in the mixer.
Heat oil, add the cumin seeds and allow to splutter
Add the minced onion and fry till golden brown.
Add the ginger garlic paste and sauté
Add garam masala, chilli powder and salt and mix well.
Add the cauliflower, coriander leaves, sprinkle some water and cook covered on low heat for about 10-12 mins. Give a stir in between.
The cauliflower should be cooked well by now.
Make big balls and divide each ball into two as shown below.
Roll out each half.
Spread some prepared filling on one half and close it with the other half
Dust with some flour... roll. Make sure you smooth out the edges or it will be thick. Take care that too much filling does not come out.
Heat a tawa and cook the parathas until both sides are golden brown.
Serve hot with raitha / curd. I made radish raitha. Read on to know how I made it
Curd – 1 cup
Oil – 1 tbsp
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Dried Red chilli – 1
