Makes 8 paratha. 

350g chapati/atta flour
½ tsp Ajwain
good pinch of salt
250ml water
ghee/oil of choice

For the filling
½ cauliflower, grated
2″ fresh ginger, roughly chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
½ tsp Ajwain
1 tsp garam masala
½ tsp salt
½ tsp chilli powder

– Place the flour, Ajwain, and salt in a large bowl. Add some water, a little at a time, and stop when you have got a nice soft dough.

– Once the dough has come together, knead it for 2 minutes until smooth. Spread a little oil over the dough. Cover it and let it rest whilst you prepare your filling.

– Place all the ingredients for the filling in a large bowl and mix well.

– Take a lime-sized portion of dough and roll it into a ball.

– Lightly coat the dough in flour. Then, use a rolling pin to flatten the ball into a hand-sized disc.

– Add a handful of the filling to the centre of the disc and pinch the sides together to seal it. 

– Coat the dough in some flour and then flatten with a rolling pin.

– Add the paratha to a hot pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Once the paratha has started to bubble, lightly spread some oil/ghee onto both sides and cook for 1 minute on each side until golden and crispy.

– Repeat the process with the rest of the dough.
