Gobi Paratha is a most popular breakfast in Northern regions of India. Finely grated cauliflower/ gobi along with spices are stuffed inside a whole wheat roti and roasted on a hot griddle with lots of desi ghee. Gobi Paratha is the most common Paratha that can be found in any restaurants and Punjabi dhaba next to Aloo Paratha.

There are many methods of doing Gobi Paratha. Few likes to saute and cook gobi before stuffing . But my method of making gobi stuffing is easy , I simply blanch Gobi/Cauliflower to get rid of harmful pesticides. Then finely grate / mince gobi and add into sauteed onion, ginger garlic paste . Throw in some spices and stuffing for paratha gets ready. Few doesn’t add onions and ginger garlic paste , but I do add to enhance the taste. Also I saute onions, ginger and garlic in little oil to remove the raw smell , as I find the smell of onion and garlic bit overpowering in a morning meal.

Adding raw/blanched cauliflower to the stuffing enhances the taste of paratha when compared with sauteed gobi . Though making of all parathas are quite similar , there are few spices and different methods followed for each different stuffings to make the best ever Paratha of that kind. Few Paratha Recipes shared on blog are: Sattu Paratha , Paneer Paratha , Onion Paratha , Aloo Paratha , Chinese Paratha and Mooli Paratha.
