Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a fun filled Halloween. We had “White Halloween” this year with snow :-) .
Couple of weeks back, a very good friend of mine had given a mini food chopper and told me that it is very good for chopping cabbage for cabbage paratha. And she is right, the chopper is brilliant and the cabbage came out perfect for making parathas. Thank you dearie girl for the food chopper. I will be using it very often.
Sharmi’s website had square shaped cabbage parathas and I wanted to make mine in square shapes too. It looked lovely and tasted excellent. This recipe is definitely a keeper. A very good way to sneak in the vegetables. I modified her recipe a little bit and here goes my recipe for cabbage paratha.
Cabbage- ¾ th cup
Atta/chappathi flour – 1 cup
Salt – as needed
Chilli powder – 1 teaspoon
Garam Masala – ½ teaspoon
Turmeric – a pinch
Ginger Garlic Paste – ½ teaspoon
Chopped cilantro leaves – few
Water – required to make the dough
Take a bowl add finely chopped cabbage, atta, salt, chilli powder, garam masala powder, turmeric, ginger garlic paste, cilantro, make a soft dough by adding water little by little.
Since cabbage leaves out water, be very cautious in adding water. Let the dough rest for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Divide the dough into equal portions and make parathas out of the dough. Pictorial illustrations for making square shaped parathas can be found at Sharmi’s blog .
Place the rolled out parathas in a heated tawa. Cook on both sides until you see golden spots.
Serve with Raitha and Pickle.
