Gobi paratha recipe-There are so many ways to make this gobi paratha ....Different people do in different ways...Even you all people know how to make this, still as a beginner, I made it this way.


Gobi Paratha is my brother’s favourite dish...he requested to post this last week itself..but since I haven't tried this before,so I first asked my north Indian friend, Sangeeta and did it today...So here you go my dear brother... : )

METHOD - For dough

  1. Mix wheat flour and maida with salt and oil,well.
  2. Then prepare a soft dough by adding warm water to the flour(it should not be stiff but soft...) and keep aside.

For stuffing

  1. Grate the flower part of the cauliflower using a grater,as shown in the picture. 
  2. gobi 1
  3. Keep ready the other ingredients required for the stuffing and heat a broad kadai.DSC_0684

  5. Then add the grated  cauliflower,fry for a minute and add turmeric(not shown in pic),red chilli and garam masala powders,coriander leaves and sprinkle salt (little only will be needed).
  6. Fry in high flame for 5-6 minutes,with constant stirring. 
  7. Fry till the cauliflower turns soft.By this time it should have reduced into half the amount.
  8. Transfer to a bowl after done and cool down.


  1. Take the prepared dough and roll into balls of big gooseberry size.(as shown)
  2. Roll the balls into chapattis and keep aside.

Or the authentic way of rolling (Updated)
  1. Roll a small mandarin( orange) sized ball of dough into thick circle. Fill the prepared stuff inside, say 2 tblsp. Close it towards the centre as shown, pinch and flatten.1-gobi-paratha
  2. Spread to a thick paratha with generous dusting (I use maida for dusting) and cook it both sides on a hot tawa over medium flame. Press gently while cooking to get it done evenly browned.2-gobi-paratha

Serve hot with any kind of raitha (boondi raita) or simply with pickle!

    Sure tell me the feedback....:))
    menu today,
    You are always invited....:))

  28. Hi Raks,

    Ur cooking skill is awesome.. Now a days i just look into your site for cooking.

    I also wanna suggest another method for Gobi Paratha. Instead of grating them u can cut the gobi into small pieces and boil them for 5-10 mins.
    After that spread them into a dry cloth and squeeze out the water completely. Then grind coarsely in mixie.

    Then u can put this in kadai along with ingredents which u have mentioned.

    This gives u additional taste.

    You can do the same with Brocolli as well !!

  29. maine try kiya wow so tasty wonderfull

  30. Hi,

    I followed your pizza recipe too, you somehow have a way with cooking methods, I follow them and never fail!
    Must thank you for all the wonderful effort, step by step pics et all..
    Keep it coming, for us all!
