Both gobi and aloo are favorites and their combo in this parathas is too good. here the stuffing is made of boiled and mashed potatoes, blanched and grated cauliflower and a few spices. They are easy to assemble for morning breakfast if you have done the potatoes and cauliflower a night before and also have kneaded the whole wheat dough already.

Then making these parathas are not that difficult, especially if you are used to making parathas. Stuffing the paratha takes time to perfect and with more and more practice you can easily make good stuffed parathas.

rolling the aloo gobi paratha

Whilst you go on stuffing and rolling the paratha on one side, you also roast the parathas on the other side. So the attention is divided and again with practice, you can make these transitions easily. You can serve the aloo gobi paratha straight away or stack them up in a roti basket or casserole so that they stay warm.

As soon as I make a paratha, I keep it in the roti basket. I close the basket and continue making the parathas. For frying the parathas, you can use ghee or oil. If you use sparing amount of ghee for frying the paratha, then you can spread some butter on top. But if you use a good amount of ghee, then you can skip on the butter.

Serve these aloo gobi paratha with white butter or curd or mango pickle or lemon pickle. Always try to serve the paratha hot or warm.

Servings 3 to 4


for whole wheat dough

  • 2.5 to 3 cups whole wheat flour (atta)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon oil or ghee

for paratha stuffing

  • 2 cups grated cauliflower (gobi)

  • 1 to 2 green chilies (hari mirch) - finely chopped
  • red chili powder (lal mirch powder)
  • Punjabi Garam Masala Powder or garam masala powder
  • salt as required
  • ghee or oil for frying the parathas as required
  • flour for dusting


making dough

  • Mix salt with the whole wheat flour. You can even sieve the whole wheat flour along with the salt.
  • Add ghee/oil and water to the flour. First mix and then begin to knead the dough.
  • The dough has to be kneaded well and should be soft.
  • If the dough feels dense or dry, then add some more water and continue to knead. Cover the dough and let it rest for about 20-30 minutes.

making aloo gobi paratha filling

  • Rinse and slice the gobi/cauliflower into 2 parts or 4 parts.
  • Heat water with some salt it comes to a vigorous boil.
  • Add the sliced cauliflower and switch off the flame. Cover the pan and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
  • Meantime rinse the potatoes and boil or steam them in a pressure cooker or steamer. They should be well cooked and falling apart. So that you can mash them easily. Once they are warm or you can handle the heat, peel and mash them.
  • Now drain the cauliflower and wipe then dry.
  • Grate the cauliflower and take all of it in a bowl
  • Add the mashed potatoes. Add chopped green chilies. Mix well and keep aside.

making aloo gobi paratha

  • Pinch two small or medium sized balls from the dough.
  • Roll them in your palms. Dust them with flour and roll into a small circles.
  • Place a few tbsp of the filling on one of the dough circle.
  • Keep in mind that the filling should not be too less or too much.
  • Sprinkle 2 to 3 pinches of salt, garam masala powder and red chili powder evenly on the stuffing.
  • Sprinkle some flour on the filling. This helps in absorbing the moisture and when rolling, the paratha does not break or tear.
  • Lightly sprinkle some wheat flour and roll the aloo paratha gently into a diameter of 6-8 inches.
  • Place the stuffed aloo paratha on a hot tava or griddle. When one side has slightly browned, flip the paratha.
  • Spread or brush some oil/ghee ( I usually add 1 to 2 tsp oil or ghee) on the browned side.
  • Flip again and brush oil (again 1 to 2 tsp oil or ghee) on the other side.
  • Flip once or twice, till you see golden spots on the paratha and they look crisp and well cooked.
  • Serve the aloo gobi paratha hot with fresh yogurt, mango pickle or lemon pickle topped with some butter.
