Ingredients:

salt --> to taste
few drops of ghee

Salt --> to taste


Method:
----------

  • Grate cabbage add salt to the grated cabbage and keep aside for 30 mins. Once the cabbage becomes watery, squeeze out the excess water from the grated cabbage.Keep the water aside don't throw it away, we will use it for kneading the dough. 
  • Prepare the outer covering of the paratha  by mixing   squeezed out warm water  plus  extra warm water into the flour along with salt and few drops of ghee. Keep this dough aside for 30 mins to 1 hr covered.Keep a check on the saltiness of the dough as the squeezed out water has salt in it also.
 
  • Prepare the stuffing and divide it into 6 equal portions and shape them into balls.
 
  • Now divide the dough into 6 portions. Roll these dough balls into a small circle and place the stuffing in the center .Bring the dough ball together around the stuffing and seal it properly.

  • Flatten the prepared ball with your finger tips,then roll them into big circle.The parathas should be rolled thicker than the usual chapati.
  • Shift the rolled parathas onto a hot griddle/tava and roast them  on medium-high heat until you see brown spots brushing little ghee on either sides .
  •  Serve the hot yummy parathas with raitha and pickles of your choice.
Notes:
  •         The amount of water depends on the quality of  flour used.
