Aloo Gobi Ke Parathe, Aloo Cauliflower Paratha Recipe recipe with step by step photos
We have a huge collection of Paratha recipes on our website.So apart from Aloo Gobi ke Parathe, you can try out recipes like:
Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds to it.
When the seeds crackle, add the ginger-green chilli paste to it. Ginger-green chilli paste is very easy to make at home and only takes a few steps.
With this, add the cauliflower as well. We have used grated cauliflower as it is easier to make the filling.
Mix well and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
Now we will add the masalas. First add the coriander powder for an earthy taste.
Then add the turmeric powder.
Now add the chaat masala. This will give a chatpata taste to the Aloo Gobi Paratha Stuffing.
Now add salt.
Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1-2 minutes, while stirring occasionally or till the rawness of the masalas goes.
Finally add the potatoes to this mixture. We have used boiled and mashed potatoes but you can use grated potatoes as well.
Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally till mixed well.
Transfer to a plate and keep aside to cool slightly.
To make the dough for Aloo gobi paratha, in a deep bowl take whole wheat flour ie. Gehun ka atta.
Then add the oil.
Also add salt to taste.
Mix it very well with your fingertips till the salt and oil is well mixed in the dough.
Slowly add water and combine all the ingredients. We have used approximately 3/4 cup of water to make this dough.
Knead it into a soft dough. The dough should be smooth & not sticky.
Now add the oil and knead again. You will have to knead the dough for 4 to 5 minutes to get it smooth and not lumpy.
Cover with a lid or damp muslin cloth and keep aside for 10-15 minutes. The dough needs to be covered so that it does not try out.
Divide the dough into 6 equal portions and keep aside.
Divide the Aloo gobi stuffing into 6 equal portion and keep aside.
Coat one portion of the dough lightly in flour and flatten it on the rolling board.
Roll out one portion of the dough into a 100 mm. (4”) diameter circle using a little wheat flour for rolling.
Place a portion of the prepared stuffing in the center of the circle.
Bring together all the sides in the centre while pushing the stufing down so as to form a covering.
Bring the sides together to form a ball, remove the excess dough and seal it tightly.
Roll out again into a circle of 150 mm. (5") diameter using a little plain flour for rolling. This is a thick paratha like the Punjabi Paneer Paratha..
Heat a non-stick pan and place the Aloo Gobi Paratha over it.
Cook on one side till light brown spots appear and then flip the paratha over.
Now, using 1 tsp oil, cook the Aloo Gobi Paratha on both sides, on a slow flame, till golden brown and cooked properly. Since this is a thick paratha the sides will take longer to cook and hence it should be cooked on a slow flame.
Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 5 more Aloo Gobi Parathas.
Serve Aloo Gobi Parathas hot with cold homemade curds using cows milk or low fat curds or with a Pickle.
