The method shared here is the second method. These no onion no garlic patta gobhi paratha make for a healthy breakfast as well as make for a good tiffin box brunch or lunch.

Serve cabbage paratha hot or warm with a side mango pickle or lemon pickle or some yogurt or butter.

How to make cabbage paratha

Preparing dough:

1. In a mixing bowl or pan take 2 cups whole wheat flour, 2 tsp oil, ¼ to ½ tsp salt or add as required. Add ⅔ cup water.

Preparing stuffing

1. Peel and remove the top skin from the cabbage (patta gobhi or band gobi). Rinse and quarter the cabbage and blanch in hot water for 5 to 10 minutes. Drain and then shred cabbage or chop it. I used 350 grams cabbage, which yielded 4 cups tightly packed shredded cabbage.

2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan or kadai. Splutter ½ tsp ajwain seeds (carom seeds). You can also use ½ tsp cumin seeds instead of ajwain seeds.

5. Dust some flour on both sides of the stuffed paratha. Roll the paratha into a circle of about 7 to 8 inches in diameter or about the size of a normal roti or chapati. If there are a few small tears in the rolled paratha, then its fine.

Cooking cabbage paratha

1. On a hot tava/skillet/griddle place the rolled paratha. The tava should be hot and not at a low temperature. Cooking parathas at a low flame will harden them. Parathas ideally are crisp as well as soft.

2. When the base is partly cooked, flip the cabbage paratha. spread some ghee or oil on the partly cooked part.

3. Flip again and this time this side has to be cooked more than the previous side. You will see brown spots on the patta gobhi paratha.

4. Spread some ghee or oil on this side too.

  4. Hi Dasanna ma’am, Thanks for the recipe. It tried this out with some left over cabbage and it turned out very well. Your recipes always come out perfect 🙂
    I had one query, this is in general regarding the tawa. I have observed some folks using a concave shaped tawa for making roti/chapathi/paratha, whereas I have always used flat based griddle. Does the shape of the tawa/griddle matter in the way the roti is cooked?

    • welcome bhuvana. yes the shape does make a difference in the taste. i also use a flat tawa as the the concave one i have is very heavy.

  5. Tried this today. Ma folks loved it. Thanks dassanna

    • welcome aditii

  6. Thanks for your recipe.It was simple and easy to make.I mixed Mashed potatoes into the cabbage mix so that it sticks inside while flattening the paratha.Also tasted better with it.I recommend if you still like potatoes in the paratha.
