BM #92 Day 7 - 

The heavenly taste of Gobi Paratha (Cauliflower Paratha) for breakfast makes my mouth water. The shredded cauliflower with spices filled in a paratha sounds so easy to think about. But the challenge is that cauliflower when shredded and salted, leaves a lot of water. 

To get around this problem, shred the cauliflower (or pulse it in a food processor), put it in an airtight container and refrigerate for 6-7 hours. It turns out very dry. Make sure salt is added just before the paratha preparation.

The alternative is to squeeze out the water from the salted cauliflower, thereby removing key nutrients from the filling.

I shredded the cauliflower the previous night and made the parathas in the morning.

Here is a recap of the week, 

A - Achari Aloo Paratha

B - Boondi Paratha

C - Cheeni Ka Paratha

D - Dal Paratha

E - Edamame Paratha

F - Fried Naan

With the letter, G for Gobi Paratha, we have reached the end of the first week of this Indian Flatbread Series. While we take a break for Sunday, lets come back with a fresh mind and continue with the next letter on Monday.

Wheat Flour 1 1/2 cups
Water as needed to knead the flour

To Prepare the Filling - 
Shred or Pulse the washed cauliflower florets, transfer them into an airtight container and refrigerate for 5-6 hours.

To make the Paratha - 
Knead the chapati dough with the whole wheat flour, oil and salt with as much water as needed. Keep it covered for about 10-15 min.

Make 7 equal portions of the dough. 

Roll out small rotis, fill in a tablespoon of the cauliflower mixture, close the edges and roll out the parathas taking care that the mixture doesn't fall out. 

Shallow fry on a griddle/tawa until both the sides are done applying as much butter as needed. Repeat the procedure for all the parathas.

  4. Beautifully stuffed gobi parathas, how prefect you have rolled them Harini. Just love gobi parathas very much with pickles and some curd.

  6. Hi.I wanted to inform you that lately all pins shared by you on pinterest do not have valid link.I wrote to you on pinterest as well to see if I could inform you.But I'm not sure if you read it.Anyways please check.thanks.

  7. I love these Gobhi Parathas as well ! In fact I add salt to gobhi and crush it well , squeeze the water which we use to bind the dough , so all nutrients are intact and a huge portion of gobhi is stuffed .
    Pulsing the gobhi is a great idea , will follow your tips the next time I make these awesome parathas .

  8. Gobi paratha is my favorite that is the reason this is even my choice also for letter G. Just a dollop of butter or malai to enjoy its deliciousness

  9. The parathas look so delicious Harini. That is a nice trick to avoid wasting nutrients from gobhi. With just yogurt, this would make a filling meal..

  11. Gobhi parathas are something to die for hahha. Looking absolutely lip-smacking parathas, I love the click style too. Feels like making them now itself.

  12. Mayuri Patel Says:
  13. I usually don't like gobi sabji but love the parathas, so try and make them as much as possible. Leaving the grated cauliflower in the fridge is a good idea to get it dry.

  14. CookwithRenu Says:
  15. Lovely share. A great way to feed the kids some veggies which they don't like and ideal for tiffin's too

  16. I am so happy to be seeing all the tips for making the perfect gobhi paratha. Refrigerating sounds like a very doable option and I will definitely try that next time.
