Start with kneading dough for making the stuffed gobi  parathas. We have taken 2 cups wheat flour in a mixing bowl. Add 1/2 tbsp of salt and 2 tbsp oil to it mix well. Add water in small portions to knead salt dough. We used less then 1 cup  of water for kneading this much quantity of flour 1 tbsp still left in the cup. Cover and keep the dough aside for 20 to 25 minutes to rest. Use later to make the parathas. 

Meanwhile let us prepare the stuffing for parathas with cauliflower. Grate the cauliflower for making the stuffing we have taken 300 grams cauliflower and make florest from it. Rinset it twice with water. Now let us grated the cauliflower very easily grate the cauliflower manually using any grater.

So that it cools down quickly. Dough again pinch. Small portion from the dough. You can keep the size of paranthas small or big as desired roll it round shape and then dust with some dry flour cover the remaining dough.

Flip the side now let the paranthas roast from the other side as well. Untill it gets little brown sports apply some oil on the upper side of the parantha, evenly turn the side and apply some oil  on this side as well.
