Stuffed cauliflower roti (Gobi parantha)

I love cauliflower and enjoy eating it in any form and shape. The usual of course, would be a stir fry with other vegetables or mixing with rice. You could try something different and stuff them in a roti... This one is inspired from the road side food stall I used to enjoy eating in Delhi.  Tastes swell with hot chilli sauce!

Ingredients- (for stuffing)

  1. 1 small cauliflower
  2. 1 tsp grated ginger
  3. 1 tsp garam masala
  4. 1/2 tsp paprika powder
  5. salt (according to taste)
  6. oil to mix the stuffing
Ingredients (for base/roti)
  1. wheat flour (3 cups)
  2. salt (3/4 tsp)
Preparation- In a bowl, mix wheat flour, water & salt.  Knead it to a smooth dough and set it aside. For the filling, grate the cauliflower and mix it with the above mentioned spices. Add oil to mix the suffing well with spices. For making paranthas, take a small ball of dough and flatten it with a rolling pin (using a  bit of flour so that it doesn't stick to the surface)- Take around two spoons of the filling and place it in middle of the flattened dough. Fold the sides with the filling in middle so that it appears as a small pouch.  Flatten this pouch with a bit of flour to a round shape-

In a pan, fry the paranthas till golden brown on both sides- Serve it hot with chilli sauce!  


  1. I'd love to cook with cauliflower, but my husband's not a fan. Same with sweet potatoes, which I love! I just had to marry a picky eater! ;)

  2. You can try stuffing any veg of your choice!I love sweet potatoes too :) yum!

  3. I can't wait to try some of your recipes this fall. I've never really cooked Indian inspired food, but I would love to learn.
