Let’s talk about how awesome it is to eat vegetables in disguised form. Meaning, hiding the veggies in food such a way that while eating you never know what’s been in to it. This trick works pretty well for those who hate to eat at least minimum veggies in their everyday food life. For example my son who is absolutely a fuzzy eater who chooses what gets in to his plate. He doesn’t have good friendship with most of the vegetables that go in to curry or stir-fry. So I always find ways to wrap or hide or disguise the veggies in his favorite food( like paratha?). Cabbage paratha has proved it to be so true and effective. Because paratha is one of his favorite food in which I can incorporate palak or beetroot or potato and he probably have no reasons to reject the same. So it’s WIN-WIN situation.
Cabbage, being a fiber rich veggie suits very well for curry and stir fries. But because of it’s strong pungent smell, kids easily say ‘NO’ to it. But in this cabbage paratha, I sauteed the grated cabbage thoroughly so that raw smell subsides considerably. The spices like cumin powder and garam masala would completely change the flavor of the veggie and it can become part of your chapati. The best part of this recipe is you can add little of this and little of that according your liking. Say, if you like onion or ginger flavors, chop them finely and include while sauteing. Or say, if you like spicy paratha, add teaspoon of minced green chillies and you are there.
But, I recommend to grate the cabbage so that you have no hassles while rolling. Otherwise you would probably end up rolling weird shaped paratha. So see you at the other end with a plateful of paratha with yogurt and pickle.
