Gobhi Paratha

Parathas are my go to dishes when I feel lazy to make side dishes. By making delicious parathas like this gobhi paratha it is easy to get away with serving only curd, pickle or butter/ghee on the side.
After aloo paratha, gobhi paratha is the most famous type of paratha across many households. We are no exception, we love both these types of paratha, so filling and delicious.

Parathas are also always kid friendly provided they are not overloaded with spices. Kids will simply love dishes like these where there is not a lot of confusion. Their mind works very differently, they prefer when it is a single dish like this gobhi paratha. No more mess and no more fuss!
Make sure to use fresh gobhi and rinse in salted hot water to get rid of any germs or little worms. A common feature if gobhi is not fresh. But don’t let that scare you, gobhi is easy to handle once you learn how to clean it.
Try aloo paratha, tomato paratha, methi thepla, palak paratha, carrot paratha from FOI…Also try roasted gobhi manchurian!
