Parathas are a staple of North India and typically served as breakfast with raita and pickle. We were lucky to have a small dabba near our work place. Whenever bored with our usual menu of the cafetaria we used to go the dabba for some spicy parathas.That's how I got introduced to stuffed parathas and collected the recipes from my north indian friends. 

Whole wheat flour : 2 cups
Salt: 1 tsp
Sugar: 1 tsp
Oil: 3 tsp

For stuffing
Cauliflower: 1 small sized
Green chillies chopped: 1 
Red chilli powder: 1 tsp
Garam masala powder: 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder: a pinch

  1. Mix the flour, salt, sugar and oil
  2. Make the dough with required amount of warm water
