¾ cup finely shredded cabbage
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon oil
1 broken dry red chili, deseeded
½ teaspoon cumin seeds
pinch of hing/asafoetida
an inch piece of ginger, grated
1-2 green chillies, finely chopped
½ teaspoon cumin seeds/jeera powder

Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Add dry red chili and cumin seeds.

Once it splutters, add hing/asafoetida, finely chopped onions, green chillies and ginger.

Sprinkle a pinch of salt and saute until onions turn transparent.

Then add shredded cabbage and all the spice powders one by one – coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder and salt (Be careful while adding salt at this stage, as we have added a pinch of salt to onions. So, add salt accordingly) and saute till cabbage is cooked and mixture gets blended well.

Remove from flame and keep aside.

In a wide bowl, combine whole wheat flour and pinch of salt.

Add the prepared cabbage-onion mixture and knead into a smooth dough adding water gradually.

Divide the dough into equal parts and make balls out of it.

Dust a little flour and roll in to make parathas. Roll out parathas of medium thickness.

Heat a tawa/non stick pan and place the paratha.

cook the paratha using little oil till golden brown spots appears on both sides.

Repeat the same steps to make more parathas.
