cauliflower parota

This is yet another of the parotas we prepare regularly. For me parotas are the saviors , when I can't zero in on any side dishes to go with the chapathis. The filling can be prepared before hand and stacked away in the fridge . This comes in handy to put together a meal in when in a hurry.
Presenting the two flowers of a different kind ! One a visual treat & the other a gastrnomical one.

Ingredients for the filling -

Cauliflower - 1 medium flower
Onion - 2 medium chopped finely
Oil - 2 tbsp
Jeera - 2 tsp
Red chilly powder - 2 tsp
Dhaniya powder - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Coriander - 2 tbsp, chopped
Sugar - 1 tsp
Amchur powder - 1 tsp


Wash the florets & pulse in the blender or grate the florets.
In a pan , heat the oil & temper with the cumin.
Stir in the onions for a couple of minutes.
Add the prepared cauliflower & cook covered, stirring now & then till the rawness goes.
Add all the powders and give it a good mix.
Garnish with the coriander.

Prepare a soft chapathi dough.
Roll out 2 small puris.
On the 1st puri, spread a tbsp of the filling , leaving a margin all around to seal the edges.

Cover with the other puri & seal the edges.
Dust a plastic sheet & roll this parota lightly.
Cook on a hot griddle on both the sides with a tsp of oil.
Tastes good by itself or with pickles & curds.
