I always tend to avoid buying Gobi when I go to Groceries becoz I find cutting Gobi into small florets a very tedious process. I had a Gobi which I bought last week and was untouched, so to get rid of it easily the only process that hit my mind was to grate it. And what do I do with grated Gobi…???? Hmmmm… Make Parathas Ofcourse 🙂
So here goes the recipe for the Gobi Parathas…
For the Dough:
Whole Wheat Flour: 3 cups
All Purpose Flour: 1 cup
Yogurt: 2 tbsp
Warm Water: for kneading
Salt: to taste
For the Filling:
Cauliflower: 3 cups, grated
Onion: 1 small, finely chopped
Finely Chopped Garlic: 1 tsp
Finely Chopped Ginger: 1 tsp
Green Chillies: 4, finely chopped (Adjust acc to taste)
Jeera/Cumin Seeds: 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder: a pinch
Amchur/Dry Mango Powder: ½ tsp
Garam Masala: 1 tsp
Kitchen King Masala: 1/2 tsp
Fresh Coriander Leaves: a handful, finely chopped
Oil: 1 tsp
Salt: to taste
How I did it:
- Knead the dough with the whole wheat flour and maida, using curd and warm water. Cover the dough with a wet muslin cloth and let it rest for about 30 mins.
- Heat oil in a kadai and add cumin seeds.
- When it sizzles, add finely chopped onions, green chillies, ginger and garlic and fry for few mins.
- Add turmeric, dry mango powder, garam masala, kitchen king masala and mix well.
- Mix in grated cauliflower florets and salt to taste and fry for 4 to 5 mins till the Gobi becomes soft and the mixture is dry.
- Add finely chopped coriander leaves, and turn off the heat and let the stuffing come to a room temperature. The filling should cool down completely before starting the next step.
- Now roll out small balls of the dough and fill with 1 tbsp of the filling.
- Roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Dust liberally with flour to avoid the stickiness.
- Pat off the excess flour and roast on a hot griddle.
- Fry one side for 1 minute and then turn over and brush with a little oil.
- When the second side is done and golden brown, flip and brush with a little oil on that side too.
- Serve hot with raita.
And the Verdict:
Parathas are always yummy…. and Gobi stuffing is different from the regular aloo we use. And it is not as heavy as Aloo Parathas…..
It is a perfect selection for Brunch…. tasty, healthy and filling 🙂
