Gobi Ki Paratha(Cauliflower Stuffed Paratha)

I love Parathas.Its filling,easy and you dont need a sidedish or you can go fancy by making a side dish eat it with heart content.Its goes either way.I love making this Gobi ki Paratha.When ever i have guest in home this one is on the list.Hubby is a great fan of this so is my lil one.

Ajwain gives a smoky flavor to this paratha.Cauliflower(Gobi) mingles with coriander leaves gives a nice flavor to this.Spice it up with green chilli and you dont need any sidedish.
