Gobi paratha/ Cauliflower flatbread

 My husband doesn't like roti/paratha recipes. My mom was discussing this recipe over phone. I was missing the food made by my mom. I thought I would prepare this dish and enjoy the real taste made by her. When I did, I was skeptical about my husband's comments. But first time without any fussiness he relished the paratha. Try this recipe and have fun!


3 cups of wheat flour
1 cup of water 
1 spoon of melted butter
salt as required


250 grams of cauliflower
1 potato
1 small onion
1/2 spoon cumin/ jeera
2 green chilli
1 spoon grated ginger
1/2 spoon red chilli powder
1/2 spoon garam masala
1/4 spoon turmeric
Oil as required
salt as required 


   1.Mix the wheat flour, salt , butter and add water. Knead well enough to make a dough. Keep aside for half an hour.
   2.Grate the cauliflower and potato. In a pan heat 1 spoon of oil,     add jeera. As jeera sputters add  finely chopped onion, green chilies, grated ginger. Once the onion turns golden brown add grated cauliflower and potato. Fry for 2 minutes, then add turmeric, chilli powder, garam masala and salt. Saute for five minutes
and the filling is done.
   3. Make lime sized balls out of the dough, add the filling to it. Roll it out.
