Ingredients for making the dough:

Ingredients for making the stuffing:

Ingredient for roasting the parathas:

  • Ghee (according to requirement)

Directions:

  1. To make the parathas crisp and fluffy, it is necessary to prepare the dough at least an hour before putting in the stuffing mixture. This will provide enough time to the dough to rise. Put wheat flour, salt, ghee, and water in a large mixing bowl and knead the dough. You can also make use of a food processor to make the dough and then cover the bowl and keep it aside (at room temperature).
  2. To make the stuffing, you will need to grate the cauliflower very finely. Add the chopped green chilly and run the processor once again so that the chilly pieces get mixed with the grated cauliflower thoroughly. Add black salt, garam masala, Kashmiri chilly powder, cumin powder, and coriander powder and knead the mixture by hand. Now, add the freshly chopped coriander leaves and keep the stuffing mixture aside.
  3. Cut out medium sized balls from the dough and roll it between the palms of your hand to get the round shape. Now, flatten the ball a bit and then use a rolling pin to make an even flat (small sized) disc. Put 1.5 tablespoons of cauliflower mixture right at the middle of the disc and then seal the ball. Make sure that the stuffing mixture does not come out while sealing. You will get about 12 parathas from this dough and stuffing mixture.
  4. Put some cooking spray on the tabletop and then use the rolling pin again to make slightly thick and round parathas.
  5. Keep the skillet ready by heating 2 tablespoons of ghee and then roast the stuffed paratha till it turns golden brown in color. Make sure not to burn the paratha. You will have to roast one paratha at a time and each one will take about 3 to 4 minutes to be thoroughly cooked.
