Stuffed Cabbage Parata

Stuffed Cabbage Parata's

Today's recipe is courtesy my punjabi aunty who helps me with roti's , she is awesome and she has been helping since past decade. I figured if there is food on the table after a long day without me having to slog every single night, I could give into some minor imperfections she comes with . It's all about priorities as they say !!
Cabbage parata's are delicious just a bit tricky when it comes to rolling, aunty's experienced hands do a perfect job and she rolls out these perfectly round, beautiful color, melt in your mouth parata's every single time. LOVE IT !!

Ingredients makes about 8 10 parathas
1 medium sized cabbage chopped finely

1 small potato boiled and cubed
1 tbsp kasoori methi
1/2 tbsp haldi
1 tbsp garam masala powder
1 tbsp corriander powder
1/2 tbsp red chilli powder
a pinch of amchoor (dry mango powder)

tbsp of chat masala (optional)
tbsp of fennel seeds
2-3 green chilies finely chopped (optional)
handful of finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
and salt according to taste

For Roti
1 cup atta (flour)
salt according to taste
water for kneading
oil for shallow frying (optional)

Process For filling

Note : Cabbage shreds water when mixed with salt, to avoid making a mush with dough you either pre grate and mix all the ingredients and leave aside in the refrigerator for few hours or make it ASAP within few minutes of grating.
1. Grate cabbage, green chillies and coriander together or separate if you wish , I use food processor and mix all of them together.
2. To the grated cabbage add boiled and cubed potato and rest of the dry ingredients and mix well.

For Paratha
1.Mix all ingredients except water. Add a little at a time and form a soft dough. try to make this at least 30 minutes before using.
2.Always keep covered with a moist cloth, and see that the cloth is kept moist
For stuffing paratha
1.Roll a thick roti and place a small portion of the filling in the center
2.bring all the edges of the roti together and make sure that the entire filling is covered
3.and then roll into a nice round shape dusting with flour as required
4. heat a griddle/tava and place Paratha
5.let it cook on one side and then repeat on the other side
6.Add a tspn of oil to paratha and let it fry till it gets golden brown.

Serve hot with raita.
