gobi paratha for the win

Gobi Paratha is possibly the favourite meal I've learned to make from my mother-in-law. Flatbread stuffed with spicy cauliflower mixture that you eat with yoghurt and chutney? Yum!

Start by grating the cauliflower florets, spread out on a towel and leave to dry overnight. Add garam masala, chili pepper, ajawain and salt. Note: ajawain is not required, it just helps with digestion.

Make the dough with chapati flour and water. I learned to how to do this by feeling the dough and watching, so I don't have the best idea of the ratio.

Roll out two discs and pile on the cauliflower mixture. Put the other disc on-top and roll them out together!

Cook until golden brown on both sides, spread a small amount of olive oil on both sides. And finally the best part, eat! If you want to learn how to make it, I suggest you buy a ticket to New York and I'll show you in my kitchen. Otherwise I'll try my best to write out the recipe, but I make no promises that it'll turn out correctly.


  1. Oh my goodness, oh my goodness! I forgot how much I loved these when we made them together. The best part was making them with you.
    Now I just need a flight to New York. Although, your pictures of icicles makes it hard for me to leave my sunshine for your snow.

  2. The icicles are slowly disappearing! It's sunny today which is lovely!
