Third Step -Prepare the stuffing. Remove the florets from the water and grate them with a help of a grater. Heat oil in a pan ,add cumin seeds, when they turn brown add the chopped ginger and green chillies, fry it well. Now add the grated cauliflower , tip in the turmeric powder, garam masala powder along with little salt and mix well. Allow it to cook for about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Fourth and final step -Pinch a small portion from the dough and make a perfect ball shape, roll it , place the cauliflower mixture and seal the edges. Dust it in the flour and roll again and make a paratha. Place them in a hot tawa and when done serve it hot .
