Gobi Paratha (Cauliflower-stuffed Flatbread)

I have fun cooking with my father because he’s always up for inventing or trying out new recipes. I guess it makes sense because experimenting in the kitchen is a natural extension of his work as a scientist. And like a scientist, he is also quite methodical in the way in which he follows and dictates a recipe. On this trip, there was some hilarious footage of him giving me step by step instructions on the correct way to cut a pineapple but that is for another time……..

The recipe we tried out this time was for gobi paratha, which is a flat bread that is stuffed with curried cauliflower filling and then rolled out and fried on a skillet – yum! You can make paratha with no filling, but usually it is stuffed with potato. It’s a really good traveling or picnic snack because it is curry and roti in one. It goes well with yogurt and some Indian pickle or with a potato curry.

When I was in college, my father would make a stack of potato ones for me to take back to school. Making paratha for the first time with him, I realized how much care goes into each one. It’s a nice recipe to make with a friend or your dad:)
