Cabbage paratha

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 0 comments
I love and adore paratha's for their simplicity and versatality. Paratha's come out great with any vegetable stuffing which you might not normally otherwise like it as a subzi or a curry.Broccoli paratha, peas paratha, cabbage paratha, mooli paratha...the list is endless...

Cabbage is one such vegetable which I don't prepare often other than those for carrot cabbage stir fry and cabbage moong dal stir fry.

This vegetable is the storehouse of phyto-chemicals which are powerful antioxidants and known to help protect against breast, colon and prostate cancers and help reduce bad cholesterol levels in the blood. Cabbage is an excellent source of natural antioxidant vitamin C and are very rich in many other essential vitamins like vitamin b5, vitamin b6, vitamin b1 and vitamin k. It also conatins adequate amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, iron and magnesium. 

So dont you feel it essential to include this humble wonder veggie in your menu regularly. This cabbage paratha which I tried recently was a sure winner in taste too.

1 cup wheat flour

For cabbage stuffing
2 cup shredded cabbage
1 ts cumin seed (coarsely crushed)
2 green chillies (finely chopped) / 1 ts red chilli flakes
1 ts amchur powder
1/2 ts garam masala
Generous amount of finely chopped coriander leaves\


- Add some salt to the shredded cabbage and leave it aside for a minimum of 15 minutes. The cabbage will leave out some of its water. Take some cabbage and press them with your palms to squeeze out its water. Repeat that for your whole cabbage shreds. Use that water to knead your chapati flour.
- To the squeezed out cabbage add crushed cumin seeds, green chillies/ red chilli flakes, amchur powder, garam masala and coriander leaves.Mix them evenly.
- Portion them out into needed amount required for your stuffing.

- Knead your chapati flour. And shape them into small balls.

- Now stuff the cabbage filling into the flour and roll them into your favorite paratha.
