Cabbage and Paneer Parathas ( Jain Recipe) recipe with step by step photos
To make the dough for Cabbage and Paneer Paratha, in a deep bowl take whole wheat flour ie. Gehun ka atta. You can even add little maida if you want but, wheat flour makes it healthy and nutritious. See detailed benefits of whole wheat flour and why it's good for you.
To this add salt to taste and ghee. Mix this well with your hands so that the salt and ghee evenly spread out in the flour. If you don't want to add ghee, you can even add oil.
Slowly add water and combine all the ingredients.
Knead into a soft dough. The dough should be smooth & not sticky i.e it should not stick to your hands. We have used approximately 1/2 cup of water.
Cover with a lid or damp muslin cloth and keep aside for 10 to 15 minutes. We cover the dough so that it dos not dry out.
Place the grated cabbage in a deep mixing bowl. Grating the cabbage allows it mix very well with other ingredients. If you do not want to use paneer, you can make something different like Cabbage and Dal Paratha
Now add the crumbled paneer to this. Read the interesting article on why is paneer good for you?
Now add the finely chopped coriander for a fresh, herby taste.
Add finely chopped chillies and salt for a spicy bite. If you want you can even add a little amchur to add a zingy taste.
Mix all the ingredients well by hand or with a spoon so that every ingredient is evenly mixed.
Divide the stuffing into 5 equal portions. Keep aside.
Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and shape them into balls.
Take one ball of dough, flatten it, dip it in flour and dust off the excess flour.
Roll it out into a 125 mm. (5”) diameter circle using a little wheat flour for rolling. This should be a very thin roti. Repeat the same with the remaining portions of the dough.
Sprinkle a litle flour on clean, dry surface and place the roti on it. This is to avoid the roti from sticking to the surface.
Evenly spread one portion of the stuffing over one roti. Leave about 1/2 centimeter space from the edges so that it is easier to seal the edges.
Dip one finger in water and apply it on the edge of the roti.
Place 1 more roti over the stuffing.
Seal the edges properly so that the filling does not fall out and so that the dough does not tear.
Heat a non-stick pan and place the Cabbage and Paneer Paratha over it.
Cook on one side till light brown spots appear and then flip the Cabbage and Paneer Paratha over. Be extremely careful while flipping it as it you do not want to unseal the edges of the paratha.
Now, using 1 tsp oil, cook the Cabbage and Paneer 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. Since the edges are sealed this way, press down a little on them so that the sides cook well.
Serve Cabbage and Paneer Paratha immdiately with Onion Raita.
