Take 2 cups wheat flour in mixing bowl and to it add 2 tsp of oil and ½ tsp salt. mix everything really well. now add water in small portions and knead soft dough. cover the dough and keep it aside for 20 to 25 minutes to set. we used less than 1 cup of water for kneading this much quantity of flour.

3. Meanwhile, for the stuffing, place a pan or wok on flame and pour 2 tsp of oil into it. when the oil gets heated, splutter cumin seeds then 1 pinch asafoetida, ¼ tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp coriander powder, 1 finely chopped green chilli and sauté the masala for a while.

5. Dough is also ready, grease the hand with some oil and knead the dough. pinch some dough and smoothen it to make a peda. dust the peda with some flour and roll it out into 3 to 4 inch diameter.

6. Put 2 tsp cauliflower stuffing on the rolled dough sheet. lift the edges of the dough and close the stuffing nicely. flatten the dough ball by pressing it gently with the fingers.

7. Dust the stuffed dough ball with some dry flour and again roll it out into slightly thick 5 to 6 inch diameter parantha. heat a tawa and pour some oil and spread it evenly then place the parantha over it and let it roast from beneath.

8. Once the parantha gets roasted from beneath, flip its side and apply some oil on top. then again flip the sides of the parantha and spread some oil on this side as well. gently press the parantha with the spatula and roast it on medium-low flame until brown spots appears on both of its sides.

9. Parantha is now roasted aptly, transfer it on a bowl placed over a plate or serve it directly. similarly, stuff, roll and roast the paranthas. gobhi paranthas are now ready.
