Gobi or cauliflower grows abundantly in the punjab. This vegetable is enjoyed by people of all ages and is a specialty at most celebration and religious gatherings. Here gobi has been combined with a cooked onion masala and used as a stuffing for a parathas. Serve these hot golden brown parathas glistening with ghee, with some pudina raita and lehsun ka achaar. It also tastes great as an accompaniment to the dal amritsari.
