Gobi Paratha with Multi grain Atta

It is very rare that I follow a recipe word to word. I did it this time. It is for a recipe for  Gobi paratha that I got from a youtube video by Smt. Manjula. I really thank her for her wonderful recipe and demonstration as well. I have also embedded the video here. She used 1 cup of flour and I used 2 cups flour. I prepared these parathas using a very healthy atta - Pillsbury atta with multi grains. The parathas were tasty and stayed soft as well. It has extra protein, calcium and iron and seven different natural grains are present in the flour. See the embedded ads for this atta that I found in youtube. Here's the recipe.


The following ingredients quanitity is for 15 parathas:

Pillsbury atta with multi grains - 2 cups (unsifted) which is approximately 300 gms for the paratha and quarter cup for dredging/dusting. 

Oil - 1 tablespoon for the dough and 'spray oil' for preparing parathas

Salt - 1 teaspoon for the dough and 1 teaspoon for gobi filling

Water - approximately 1 cup

Gobi / Cauliflower - 1 medium

Ajwain seeds - 2 teaspoons

Cumin seeds - 2 teaspoons

Coriander leaves - finely chopped - handful

Green chillis - 3 chillis finely minced (use less or more as per your taste)


Prepare the dough:

Add oil to the flour and mix one teaspoon salt and three-fourths cup water. Knead the flour to make a soft dough. Sprinkle water if needed while kneading. Cover and keep it aside. 

Prepare the filling:

Separate the cauliflower florets from its stem.

Wash the cauliflower florets using a colander and strain excess water.

Shred the cauliflower. I used my Cuisinart food processor using the shredder disc.

The shredded cauliflower should be approximately 4 to 4½  cups

Transfer the shredded cauliflower to a mixing bowl and add the following:

one teaspoon salt, ajwain seeds, cumin seeds, coriandar leaves and green chillis. Mix well and keep it aside for 5 to 10 mins.

Divide the dough:

Meanwhile, knead the dough again and make 14 to 15 equal parts and keep it aside.

Draining excess water from the filling:

By this time the prepared gobi filling would have left water due to the presence of salt. 

Drain out the excess water from the filling by pressing the filling between two palms. 


Dredge one part of the dough in the flour and roll to make a 3 inch diameter circle.

Keep a tablespoon of filling in the middle and make a dumpling by enclosing it on all sides. Seal on the top.

Repeat the process for the rest of the dough.

Rolling the paratha:

Dredge the stuffed dough in the flour and keeping the sealed portion on the top, gently roll the dough to a 5 to 6 inch diameter circle. Dust  with flour if needed.

Repeat the procedure for the rest of the stuffed dough.

Making parathas:

Heat a non stick griddle/tawa. 

Once the tawa is heated, Keep in medium heat and place one paratha. After a minute, spray or dribble oil on the top side and toss the paratha. Again, spray or dribble oil and press gently. Toss again. Make sure it is roasted golden both sides. Repeat for the rest of the rolled parathas.

The Gobi parathas are ready. Serve hot with any side dish/raitha. These parathas are really filling.

hey!! you have a wonderful blog. thanks for sharing your life and experience here. keep it up and never give up. you can do it.

hema said...

I would like to suggest a slight variation in the way the filling is made.

Mix all the masala to the shredded gobi except the salt.

Mix salt to one part of the gobi mix and then stuff the dough.

You won't need to squeeze the excess water.

That makes it tastier and more nutritious.

Grating also minimizes the oozing of water as against shredding.
