Gobhi ka Paratha


Gobhi paratha is an Indian flatbread which is often paired with curd, pickle and tea. It is a common breakfast choice as it is made with the simplest ingredients available in your pantry. As it is made with cauliflower, whole wheat flour and healthy fats, it is a power packed recipe loaded with nutrients.


For the Dough

  • 2 Cup Whole Wheat flour
  • Salt to taste
  • Water for kneading the dough

For Stuffing

  • 1 Cup Grated Gobi/Cauliflower
  • 2-3 green chillies (as per taste)
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • A pinch of asafoetida
  • ½ inch grated ginger (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 2-3 tablespoon fresh chopped coriander
  • Salt to taste

For Making the Parathas

  • Dry whole wheat flour for dusting
  • Ghee/Oil for Shallow frying.


Gobhi paratha Dough

  • In a bowl, mix the whole whole wheat flour and salt.
  • Knead the dough by adding water until it’s soft and pliable.
  • Soft dough helps in the stuffing spread out evenly and the outcome is best.


  • Wash the cauliflower flower in boiling hot water. You may add salt and turmeric to this water as well.
  • Grate/roughly chop the cauliflower in small bits.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the asafoetida and cumin seeds and let it crackle.
  • Now add all the dry spices and give a quick mix.
  • Next add in the grated cauliflower, coriander and salt and mix everything.
  • Now add the green chillies and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Switch off and let the mixture cool completely.

Making the Parathas

  • Divide the dough into equal sized balls.
  • Usine one of dough balls, roll out a 2-3 inch circular disc.
  • Now add around 2 tablespoon of the cauliflower mixture.
  • Pull over the dough from all the sides and seal it.
  • Dip it into the dry whole wheat flour and lightly pat it between your palms so that the dal mixture gets evened out.
  • Start rolling the paratha to the desired size (4-5 inch diameter). Do not turn in between just keep on rolling the paratha. If required apply dry whole wheat flour in between to roll the paratha’s.
  • Once rolled, put it on a hot greased tawa or a non-stick pan, on slow flame.
  • Flip it after 50-60 seconds.
  • Let it cook again on a slow flame for 1-2 mins or until brown spots start appearing all over.
  • Then apply a little Ghee/oil and cook for a min. Turn, apply Ghee/oil and again cook.
  • Continue cooking on both sides until golden spots appear on both the sides and the paratha is evenly cooked.


  • Paratha dough must not be too stiff.
  • If you are not cooking the stuffing, add the salt in the mixture just before starting to make it as it will release water.
