Making of Gobhi Paratha
The delectable Gobhi Paratha is made from the unleavened dough from whole wheat flour and a stuffing of grated cauliflower mixed with spices. The dough is kneaded till it is smooth and soft and kept then kept aside for later use. The stuffing is prepared by grating the cauliflower and mixing spices and herbs such as salt, pepper, chaat masala, green chilies, and coriander leaves.
The filling is then placed inside a rolled dough and closed in a ball again. Using a rolling pin, a flat circular bread is rolled and placed on a tawa to cook. The paratha is cooked with oil or butter and served hot accompanied with curd, pickle or a spicy-tangy chutney to devour.
