  • Try Gobi Paratha by complimenting it with Pickle, Curd, Green Chutney or Milk Cream with Sugar (Malai).
  • Remember not to add Salt while preparing Stuffing else the Salt will make Cauliflower loose more water and this will in turn spoil your dough.
  • We have used Kashmiri Lal Mirch aka Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder. If you are using more hot chilli powder then use the quantity accordingly else it may spoil your experience.
