Gobhi Parantha Recipe Card


Hindi: phool gobhi
Till a few years ago, cauliflower used to be a vegetable that is only available during winter but of late cauliflower is available year around especially in big cities. Referred to as the aristocrat of the cabbage family, the flowers are also eaten raw at times. While buying, look for fresh cauliflowers with compact white heads and green fresh looking leaves. Avoid and reject any loose or spread out heads – they are a sure sign of over maturity.

Ingredients for Gobhi Parantha Recipe

  • Cauliflower , grated 1 cup

  • Whole wheat flour (atta) 1 1/2 cups for dusting

  • Salt to taste

  • Oil 1 tablespoon

  • Fresh coriander leaves , chopped 1 tablespoon

  • Green chillies , chopped 1/2 teaspoon

  • Ginger , chopped 1/2 teaspoon

  • Red chilli powder 1/2 teaspoon

  • Turmeric powder 1/4 teaspoon

  • Garam masala powder 1 teaspoon

  • Carom seeds (ajwain) 1/2 teaspoon

  • Ghee for basting

  • Yogurt to serve

  • Green chutney to serve

  • Mango pickle to serve


Step 1

Take whole wheat flour in a bowl, add salt and 1 tablespoon oil and mix well. Add sufficient water and knead into a semi-soft dough. Cover with a damp muslin cloth and set aside for 10-15 minutes.

Step 2

To prepare stuffing, take cauliflower in another bowl, add coriander leaves, green chillies, ginger, salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder and carom seeds and mix well.

Step 3

Divide the dough into equal portions. Shape each portion into a katori, stuff it with cauliflower mixture, gather the edges together and press to seal. Roll them into balls and flatten slightly.

Step 4

Coat each stuffed ball with dry whole wheat flour and roll out into semi-thick discs.

Step 5

Heat a non-stick tawa. Place each parantha on it and roast for ½ minute. Flip, spread some ghee on top and flip again. Spread some ghee on the other side too and cook, turning sides, till both sides are evenly golden brown.

Step 6

Halve the paranthas, arrange them on a serving plate and serve hot with yogurt, green chutney and mango pickle.
