How to make gobi paratha dhaba style?

To make gobi paratha in the style of a dhaba, a type of roadside restaurant common in India, you can follow the recipe below:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup grated or minced cauliflower
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp red chili powder (optional)
  • 2 tbsp ghee or oil, plus more for frying
  • Water, as needed


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cauliflower, salt, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, garam masala, and red chili powder (if using). Mix well to combine.
  2. Add the ghee or oil to the mixture and mix until the dough comes together.
  3. Add water as needed to form a soft, pliable dough. Knead the dough for a few minutes until it becomes smooth.
  4. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and set aside to rest for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Divide the dough into 8 equal-sized balls.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each ball of dough into a thin circle.
  7. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Place one of the rolled out dough circles onto the griddle.
  8. Cook the paratha for 1-2 minutes on each side, until it is golden brown and crispy.
  9. Repeat with the remaining dough circles.
  10. Serve the parathas hot, with yogurt or chutney on the side. Enjoy!

Note: To make the parathas in the style of a dhaba, you can use a little more oil or ghee to fry the parathas until they are crispy and golden brown. You can also sprinkle some chaat masala or red chili powder over the parathas before serving for an added kick of flavor.
