My aayi loves stuffed parathas. Everytime we visit India, we go to this small paratha place near my brother’s home in Bangalore. It is aayi’s favorite place. Last few days, I have been missing her so much. So I decided to make these and pretend as if she was right here. It made me feel good.
2 cups grated cabbage
2 tbl spn chopped coriander leaves
1/2 tea spn garam masala
1/2 tea spn chilli powder
A pinch turmeric
2 cups wheat flour
Make a dough from wheat flour by adding salt and water. Add 1 tea spn oil to the dough and knead very well. Keep it closed for about 30mins.
Heat oil and add grated cabbage. Fry for few minutes. Then add garam masala, chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt. Mix well. Cook it down till all the mixture becomes very dry. Add coriander leaves and mix well. Take off the heat and let it cool.
When you are making parathas, make sure the stuffing is as dry as possible. Squeeze the cabbage once it cooks down a bit to remove any extra moisture. If is better to squeeze out the moisture before adding any spices.
Take a ball from the dough. Stuff the cabbage mixture. Roll into paratha. Roast the paratha from both sides. Apply ghee/butter if you like. Serve hot with pickle or yogurt.
