Notes

  • Ghee is commonly used to fry the paratha, but I prefer to use oil. Ghee is also an option, but it isn’t vegan.
  • First, thoroughly rinse off 12 of the cauliflower head. Check the cauliflower for insects and worms and discard those. Rinse very well and drain the water very well.
  • Before you place the rolled Paratha on the hot Tawa, make sure the Tawa is hot.
  • If you are making the stuffing in advance, skip the salt. Add salt when you are preparing the paratha since the Gobi leaves the water.
  • So that the parathas are crispy, you have to cook them on low heat and press them towards the Tawa with the back of a spoon.
  • Roll each paratha one at a time and continue rolling from one side to another until it is a perfect size.
  • You can prepare the paratha with ghee if you want. It tastes even better.
  • Next, grate the cauliflower pieces with a fine grater.
  • To get crispiness in parathas, press the paratha with the back of the ladle while cooking.
  • Low heat will result in a dense paratha, while high heat will burn them, so cook on medium heat.
  • Ghee can also be added to the dough since it makes it extra soft and adds a delicious flavor to the crispy parathas.
