Crisp and tasty parathas that none can refuse, the stuffed cauliflower paratha is wonderful way of preparing healthy cauliflower. Whole wheat flour and a liberal amount of cauliflower make this a nutritious dish, which is crispier than normal parathas due to the addition of rice flour. Aromatic herbs like coriander and mint along with green chillies give these parathas a naturally strong aroma that kindles one’s appetite.
