The Northern side of India is especially famous for all sorts of mouth watering parantha (stuffed Indian bread) recipes. Indian bread has a unique recipe and taste that is quite easy to prepare and nutritious as well. I remember the famous ‘Paranatha wali gali’ in Delhi where you can have tongue licking exceptional recipes and a range of mind blowing paranthas. Combining vegetarian as well as non vegetarian delicacies as stuffing, Indian breads are simply awesome. Indian recipes are truly mind-blowing. Let’s see the recipe of cauliflower stuffed parantha popularly called ‘Gobi ka parantha’ in the entire Northern region of India.

Ingredients: (for preparation of 10-12 paranthas)

Step1: Mash the already boiled cauliflower. Heat oil in a container. Dash tomatoes, cumin powder, coriander powder, ginger paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder into it. Stir well with the help of a spatula till it takes an even contour. This will be used as a stuffing inside parantha. Allow the mixture to be cool.

Step 2: Prepare dough out of the white flour adding little salt, oil and water. Press the dough evenly with the help of your hands and make equally shaped rounded balls.

Step 3: Scoop a little of the cauliflower stuffing with the help of a spoon and put it inside the dough, then close the two extreme sides.

Step 4: Roll the dough with the help of a rolling pin till it becomes a flat rounded structure.
