This post is going to be featured on Facebook gourmet group Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge. In this group every month one of the members decide the theme. And members paired to give two secret ingredients each other. Best part is we paired every month with different bloggers so that we can interact with each other. And after preparing the dish members share a picture of the dish and other members have to guess the ingredients.
This month’s theme is Flatbread suggested by Anu Kollon who blog at Ente Thattukada. I have bookmarked her Neer dosa to try.
This month my partner is Kalyani Sri. You may like to try Quinoa dosa from her space. Kalyani gave me ginger and cabbage as secret ingredients and I made this delicious cabbage cauliflower paratha. I gave watermelon and coconut and Kalyani shared an amazing recipe of Watermelon rind dosa with these ingredients.
We have to make the dough with cabbage. Grate the cabbage,add salt and mix well. After 15-20 minutes cabbage will release enough water. Squeeze out the water completely. We will knead the dough with this water so reserve it in a bowl. In a large bowl mix flour with squeezed cabbage and knead dough with the help of it’s reserved water. Add all the spices, grated ginger, finely chopped green chilli and cilantro or coriander. Add salt just before rolling and stuffing the paratha. Roll into a small roti, place cauliflower in the middle and close the edges. Roll again and fry all paratha on a skillet/griddle/tawa or nonstick pan with the help of little oil or ghee. Easy isn’t it? If you have grated cabbage and cauliflower ready then you can make it in short notice or whenever you want to enjoy these delicious paratha.

Add grated ginger, finely chopped Green chilli, cilantro or coriander leaves, cumin powder and garam masala powder. Use green chilli according to your taste. Mix everything with a spoon. Don’t add salt. We will add salt just before stuffing the paratha to avoid the cauliflower becomes soggy.
4. Squeeze out all the water from grated cabbage. Don’t discard the water. We will use it to knead the dough.
5. Place the squeezed cabbage in a large bowl. Add whole wheat flour or atta. Knead the dough with the water of squeezed cabbage. Already added salt in cabbage so don’t add salt. Add water slowly to knead a soft dough.
6. Make equal size balls. Add salt in the grated cauliflower mixture and mix.
7. Roll the kneaded flour balls with the help of wheat flour. Dip the ball in flour and start to roll. Roll into 4 inch diameter. Place some cauliflower stuffing in the middle.
8. Gather the edges and pinch to close. Make a ball again. Dip the ball in wheat flour from both sides. Roll again carefully with the help of some flour. Dust some flour and roll gently, don’t press much. Stuffing shouldn’t be comes out.
9. Heat a tawa or skillet/griddle. Place the paratha on hot tawa. Let it cook till bubbles appear on the paratha. Flip and cook other side till light brown.
10. Brush little oil or ghee/clarified butter and fry from both sides. Make all the paratha like this. Serve hot with yogurt, pickle or chutney.
