How to prepare dough for gobi paratha

Add 3 tsp of oil and a generous pinch of salt to the wheat flour. Then add warm water little at a time and knead into a soft and pliable dough as you normally do for roti .

Cover and keep it aside for 15 minutes.

In the mean time we will prepare the gobi stuffing for the parathas.

How to prepare stuffing for gobi paratha

Put cauliflower in boiling water for 5 minutes and drain the water completely. Pat it dry and mince it in a food processor.

Heat oil, add cumins seeds, when it sizzles, add finely chopped onions and saute till it turns transparent.

Add green chillies, minced cauliflower, chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala. Saute well till all the moisture evaporates. It should be dry so that it will be easy for you to roll out the parathas. Leave it to cool.

How to make gobi parathas

There are 2 methods to make parathas. Since I have already posted one method of doing parathas in my aloo paratha recipe, here I am showing another method to make parathas. Do refer my Aloo paratha for step wise pictures and detailed explanation of the first method.

You can follow any method which is comfortable for you

Make medium sized balls from the dough. Roll it out into a small circle.You can dust rice or wheat flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin or board.

Place a tbsp of stuffing on the top of a rolled out circle and spread the stuffing evenly.(picture 1)

Then place another rolled out dough on top of it and seal the corners by pressing it lightly. (Picture 2)

Now roll it out gently with the stuffing inside to a circle approximately 7 inches in diameter dusting wheat flour.(picture 3)

Heat a tava and put the rolled out paratha on it. Wait for bubbles to appear, apply a tsp of oil (oil + ghee mixed) on the top and flip it over to the other side. Cook both sides well till brown spots appear.(picture 4 )

Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.

  28. Great recipe!! Do you have any suggestions in case there is no food processor to mince the florets. Also I out it in boiling water for 5 mins. It got over cooked. Any suggestions?

  29. In case if you do not have food processor, chop it finely.After putting it in boiling water, switch it off, let it remain in water for 5 minutes.Then drain the water completely. You can even pat it dry with a clean kitchen towel if required. Chop it only after that.

  33. hi.. in all the dishes the coriander powder what you mean is coriander seeds fried n ground to powder or the mixed masala we usually use?

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

    2. Coriander seeds dry roasted and ground or coriander seeds are sun dried and then ground to fine powder.

  34. Hi padhu,

    Thanks for the recipe once again..
    Can I use mixie in place of food processor and just mince it for about 3-5 minutes? I think it would be time consuming if we mince it manually..
    Kindly advice...


    1. Yes, you can mince in mixie also using the mincing blade. Anyway method which is comfortable for you.
