Paratha Stuffed With Spicy Cauliflower

Pin It

I tried making paratha, stuffed Indian pancakes, a while ago. They turned out pretty good, but they took a ton of time. Being lazy as I am, I haven't attempted making paratha again... until now. I got this recipe from World Vegetarian, one of the cookbooks that I got as a Christmas present. It is chuck full of delicious and exotic vegetarian recipes from all over the world, but there's definitely an emphasis on Indian cuisine.

The one big different between these paratha and the ones that I made was that this paratha is made of half whole-wheat flour and half all-purpose flour, which makes the dough more elastic and easy to work with. The previous recipe used half chickpea flour and half all-purpose flour.  The chickpea flour makes the dough tougher and harder to work with. I had a bunch of tears in my dough last time. This time, I was able to roll these paratha much thinner without tearing the dough.

Although I'm not a big cauliflower fan, I don't mind it here. The stuffing is spicy and flavorful, which means it didn't taste like cauliflower at all. Thank goodness for that.
