- 1 1/2 cup Wheat flour
- Salt to taste
- 1 tsp Oil
- Cumin seeds
- 1 medium size finely chopped Onion
- Grated Ginger
- Finely chopped Green chili
- 1 cup grated Cauliflower
- Turmeric powder
- 1 tsp Coriander powder
- 1/2 tsp Amchur powder
- 1/2 tsp Red chili powder
- 1/2 tsp Garam masala
- Finely chopped Coriander leaves
For making Paratha
- Take wheat flour into a dish. Add salt and mix well.
- Add little water at a time and knead thick dough. Do not add much water at a time.
- The dough should be neither too thick neither too thin.
- Transfer the dough into a bowl and coat it with a little oil so that it won’t get dry.
- Cover and give it a standing time of about 30 minutes.
- Heat up oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds.
- When cumin seeds sizzle up add onion and mix well.
- Add grated ginger. You can use ginger paste or finely chopped ginger too.
- Add green chili and fry the onion for about 3-4 minutes.
- When onion softens up a little add grated cauliflower.
- Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, amchur powder, red chili powder and garam masala. Mix well.
- Add salt to taste and cook the flower for about 5-6 minutes until it just becomes soft.
- Cook until flower dries up as when we add salt, flower releases moisture.
- Cook until this moisture is reduced.
- Turn off the gas and add lots of finely chopped coriander leaves.
- Mix well and let the stuffing cool down.
For making Paratha:
- Take the dough and knead it once more. Take one small ball of dough and dip it in dry wheat flour.
- Roll out a poli. While rolling the poli, roll it from the edges and let it be a bit thick at the center.
- So that when we fill the stuffing, it won’t tear up.
- Fill the stuffing and bring together all the edges of the poli and close them. Remove excess dough as we do for modak and keep it side.
- Heat up a pan on medium heat.
- Again dip the ball in dry flour and roll the paratha. Let the paratha be a little thick. You can roll thin paratha if you want.
- Transfer the paratha on hot pan. Roast for about a minute until it gets light golden color.
- When small bubbles begin to appear on paratha, flip over. Spread lots of butter. You can use ghee instead of butter if you want.
- Flip over again and spread butter on another side as well.
- Roast until it gets nice golden color form both sides.
- Take out into serving dish.
- You can have this with curd or any pickle. You can have it as it is.
