Very Easy
I have always had a soft corner for Punjabi cuisine. Love everything about them, their flavour, richness and of course,their easy ingredients.
My favourite amongst their cuisine, are their stuffed rotis and parathas.....and of that, the ones I adore are Aloo Parathas, Gobi Parathas, Methi and Palak Parathas.... Hmmm love them anytime.


Number of serving: 4

For the filling:

Cauliflower - 1 medium sized minced

Ginger - 1 tbsp grated

Chilly powder - 1 tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp

Amchur powder or dry mango powder - 1/2 tsp

Ajwain - 1/2 tsp

Cilantro leaves chopped - 1/4 cup

Mint leaves chopped - 1 tbsp

Green chilly as per need

Oil - 1 tbsp

For the dough:

Wheat flour/atta - 2 cups

Water - a needed

Salt a per taste


  • Mix wheat flour, salt and water and knead well to get a soft and pliable dough.
  • Heat oil in a wok and add ajwain seed. Wait for it to crackle.
    Now add ginger and sauté till the raw smell is off, now thrown in some chopped green chillies and mix well.
    Tip in the minced cauliflower, all the powders and salt and then cover and cook for a minute or 2.

    Add chopped cilantro and mint leaves and stir well.
    Now cook without the lid , stirring constantly till the cauliflower gets cooked well. This will take just a few minutes as the cauliflower gets cooked quite fast.
    Remove from flame and leave to cool before filling the dough.
  • Make lemon sized balls out of the dough and flatten it out using a rolling pin. Fill it up with a tablespoon of cauliflower masala and then carefully seal it up with the dough and remake a ball out of the flattened dough.
  • Roll out the dough carefully to make 1/2 inch thick disc.
    Meanwhile heat a pan. Place the paratha carefully on it a cook on either sides till it turns golden brown.
    Repeat with the rest of the dough and masala.
    Remember to keep the parathas warm till serving time.

    Serve with a blob of butter along with some raita/ yogurt and pickle or with any side dish of choice.
