A nice way to start your day with these delicious and sumptuous breakfast on a weekend. It satiates one's appetite till lunch time. To deviate from the usual masalas, I used sambar powder and some chopped curry leaves, a la South Indian style, instead of coriander and mint leaves. The end result was very tasty and something different. Try having it with butter for a change.
- 1 small cauliflower, washed and grated
- 2 tbsp. roasted gram flour
- salt to taste
- pinch of turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp. red chili powder
- 1/ 2 tsp. sambar powder
- few curry leaves, chopped fine
- 1 cup atta (wheat flour)
- 2 tbsp. oil
- oil to fry the parathas
Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a pan and fry the cauliflower and all the dry masalas, (except atta, oil and gram flour) till dry. When cool, add the roasted gram flour and mix well and divide into 5 portions. Keep aside.
Knead a dough with the atta, pinch of salt, 1 tbsp. oil and enough water into a tight dough. Keep aside for 15 minutes. Then divide the dough into 5 equal portions and roll each one into a small circle.
Place a portion of the mix into the centre and close the edges together. Now roll out as usual into a circle. You can also place the stuffing between 2 small circles and then roll.
Heat a tsp. oil and shallow fry the stuffed parathas on both sides till golden brown in colour. Continue to fry the rest of the parathas in the similar way. Serve hot with pickles or yoghurt.
