Aloo gobi paratha recipe - batata kobi parota recipe - how to make potato cabbage paratha - paratha recipe

Aloo gobi paratha recipe - This aloo gobi paratha is prepared by using potato and cabbage as main ingredients in the dough. I have made this paratha by using the method of mixing the ingredients, kneaded the dough to soft, rolled to round  and then shallow fried with ghee. If compared to the stuffed parathas, this method is much better and can be rolled very easily. By using this method any one can prepare parathas very quickly. This method is popularly known as thepla. Aloo gobi paratha is a very tasty and healthy dish that served for breakfast, lunch or dinner as main. Its usually served with ghee and other tangy side dishes such as yogurt, pickles and chutneys along with some drink like buttermilk or lassi. Simply because of its wholesome nutrition, the parathas prepared with whole wheat flour has significant role and priority in my menu list. The stuffed parathas can also be made using the same potato cabbage mixture. Note that while cultivating the cabbages, lots of insecticides are being used. Therefore to get rid of insecticides, separating the cabbage leaves and wash them thoroughly before its use is necessary.
