Cabbage Parathas

I found Priya celebrating a Cabbage Week and this is the same case with me, whenever I buy Cabbage it lasts too long and obviously I’ve to prepare varied versions of this vegetable. Cabbage is quite boring type of vegetable though it has got loads of Medicinal Values. The most common recipes I prepare are Cabbage patties, cabbage dry vegetable and Cabbage Parathas. I would love to know what do you all Prepare with Cabbage??IMG_3634 
When I posted my Peas Parathas I had made a resolution of trying out the odd 44 varieties present in Wiki. Till now I’ve posted only couple of them and both belonging to Stuffed Paratha Family. This one belongs to other family where the veggie is mixed with the flour and then kneaded. The following gives about Seven Parathas. IMG_3635
You Need:
  • Cabbage: Grated Finely
  • Wheat Flour: To Knead + To Dust à Proportion with cabbage should be 1:2, e.g.: for 1 cup of cabbage 2 cups of flour.
  • Ginger: 2 tsp - Grated finely
  • Carom seeds: 1 tbsp
  • Fennel Seeds: 1 tbsp
  • Cumin Powder: 1tbsp
  • Green chilies: 2-3 in number – Finely minced
  • Curd: 1 tbsp
  • Oil or Ghee: Applying while shallow frying
  • Water to knead the dough – if required
  • Salt to taste
You Do:
  1. Mix all ingredients except water and ghee in a Wide Open Bowl or Parat. Cabbage gives out water when mixed with salt so use water only if required. Knead to thick dough. cabbage parath
  2. Make big size Chapatis balls; roll out to make a circular roti form. It should not be too thick as cabbage won’t get cooked on  pan neither it should be too thin as it will become Papad :P
  3. Roast – shallow Fry on the Pan; apply ghee or oil in intervals.
Remove from Pan when both sides get cooked with light brownish tinge. Serve Hot Parathas with chutney or Pickle. They go well in Dabbas too.IMG_3636
Thanks to Cabbage’s medicinal value; the Paratha goes to Yasmeen’s Cruciferous Challenge .
