Gobi Paratta

Hi everybody,

I still can't believe that I created a blog. I am a new bud in this field .I didnt know the basic's of cooking before marriage and was really worried that my mother in law would have a bad impression on me, but luckily she never asked me to cook anything ,I only had to help her in kitchen ,so I lost my first chance to learn cooking .Few weeks later I moved to U.A.E with my hubby and was worried about my cooking skills. Luckily the food blogs came to my rescue and I tried recipes from blogs and made delicious food for my hubby. Its my sister who gave me inspirartion to start a blog ,She has a food blog with awesome recipes and she is a good cook.Thanks to her for helping me out. You can find her recipes here.

Today I am going to post a simple recipe of Gobi parata. I was very weak in rolling round shape chappathy's.Its my mother in law who tought me to make perfect round shape,before that I used to make triangle and square shaped ones..and I really had a tough time learning to make the round ones.

Here is my recipe..


Onion - 1 medium size

Cumin seeds - 1 tsp

Garam masala - 1/2 tsp

Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp

Garlic -2 3 pods

Ginger - A small piece

Turmeric powder -1/4 tsp

Cauliflower - a small one

Corainder leaves

Atta - 1 1/2 cup



Method of Preparation

First we have to Knead the atta with enough water adding salt and keep it aside. In a sucepan take some oil and sputter cmin seeds.Add the chopped onions and saute for few minutes.Add all the powders,ginger garlic paste and suate for few minutes.Add the cooked Cauliflower and coraibader leaves and stir for few minutes and turn off the fire.Now the masala is ready.Make sure that masala is dry, mix it with the dough and make small balls ,Roll out the porotta's.It should be thicker than chappathy's.Heat a non stick pan,rub some oil and cook the paratta's.
