Spicy, Crunchy Parathas

Cabbage potato parathas are spicy, soft, crunchy, and appetizing. This dish combines veggies with wheat flour to make scrumptious pancakes. They are served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Easy to Make

Making these parathas involves three main steps:

  1. Prepare the dough.
  2. Make the stuffing.
  3. Put it all together for frying.

Serve these parathas hot with a spoonful of fresh butter on them, accompanied by chutney, sauce, or yogurt. Enjoy!

Let me share the detailed recipe now.

Cook Time

Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: 10 parathas

Ingredients

For the stuffing:

  • 1 heaped cup finely chopped cabbage
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 potatoes, boiled and finely mashed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, for stir-cooking the vegetables
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1/6 teaspoon dry mango powder(amchur powder)
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, as per taste

For the dough:

  • 4 cups wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon carom seeds
  • 1 teaspoon oil or ghee
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For assembly:

  • oil for making the parathas

Instructions

  1. Put wheat flour in a mixing bowl. Add oil, salt, and carom seeds. Mix well.
  2. Knead, adding water little by little, to get a soft, firm dough. Keep it covered for 10 minutes.
  3. Boil 2 potatoes. Remove the skin. Finely mash the flesh. Set aside.
  4. In the meantime, start to make the stuffing. Heat some oil in a deep-bottomed pan. Throw cumin seeds into it and let them crackle.
  5. Add chopped onion. Saute until it turns golden brown. Add chopped cabbage. Saute for 5 to 6 minutes over medium-low fire. Sprinkle in a few drops of water if needed.
  6. Add turmeric powder, garam masala powder, dry mango powder, red chili powder, a little sugar, and salt. Mix well. Stir-cook for 1 minute on low fire.
  7. Add mashed potato and chopped coriander leaves. Combine well. Ensure that the mixture is dry. This is the stuffing for the parathas.
  8. Divide the dough into large lemon-sized balls. Take a ball and dip it in wheat flour. Roll into a small round shape. Place 1 1/2 teaspoons of filling in the center.
  9. Fold the edges and close it. Gently pat and press a little. Roll it along the stuffing to get a medium thick pancake.
  10. Heat a flat pan. Sprinkle in a few drops of ghee or oil. Place the pancake on it. Cook until it becomes golden brown on both sides. Sprinkle oil on the other side, too.
  11. Transfer the cooked paratha to a plate. Repeat this process for all the dough balls.
  12. The parathas are ready to serve. Serve them hot with yogurt, chutney, or sauce. They are spicy and awesome even without any accompaniment. Enjoy!

Important Tips

  • Mash the potatoes so they do not have any lumps. Also, finely chop the onions and cabbage. Otherwise, the big pieces will make it difficult to roll out the pancakes smoothly. If you have lumpy dough, you will end up with uneven or broken parathas.
  • Ensure that the stuffing is completely dry.
  • The dough should be firm and smooth.

    Thanks Ms Dora. Yeah..it is an awesome recipe and tastes heavenly. If you are in a hurry, no need to make chutney as a side. Instead use tomato sauce.
