Cabbage Stuffed Paratha

Few days back the weather was cloudy due to depression in Bay of Bengal and it rained for two days. Last weekend was our daughter's sports day. We were worried whether it will be cancelled because of rain. Luckily it didn't rain and sports day was well celebrated. It was delighted to see how the small kids perform in front of audiences. It was a real fun filled event! Her sports day reminded my childhood school days. We used eagerly wait for the winter for picnics, fairs and sports day..

Coming to today's recipe I am going to share cabbage paratha or cabbage stuffed paratha. I think now my regular readers know how I am crazy about stuffed parathas. Actually, these are somewhat shortcuts for a lazy or busy day. I made the stuffing simple, if you want can add capsicum in the stuffing. While making the stuffing I blanched the cabbage, this helps to cook the cabbage well. Otherwise you need more oil to fry them and cooking time will be more. 

Cabbage Stuffed Paratha


Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Refined oil - 1 tablespoon


Cabbage - 2 to 3 cups, finely sliced
Turmeric Powder - 1 teaspoon
Onion - 2 medium, chopped
Salt to taste
Ajwain/Carom Seeds -
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Ginger - finely chopped, 1 teaspoon
Refined Oil - 2 to 3 tablespoon


1. Take whole wheat flour, salt and oil in a bowl. Add required water to make a smooth dough. Keep it aside.
2. Blanch the cabbage and drain the water.
3. Heat oil in a pan and add carom seeds.
4. Next add the chopped onions followed by blanched cabbage. Cook well.
5. Add chopped ginger, salt, turmeric powder and red chilli powder. Mix them well.
6. If you wish can add chopped green chilli and coriander leaves. 
7. Once the cabbage is well cooked, switch off the gas and allow the stuffing to cool.

8. Now make bigger size ball from the dough and stuff  each dough with the cabbage stuffing. Seal the balls properly.
9. Roll each ball to a round shaped roti (circular disc) using a rolling pin dusting flour. 
10. Heat skillet and fry the stuffed parathas and serve with pickle or curd.
