The first day is recognized as an auspicious day and to mark the occasion, they begin their day in the early hours of dawn with an oil bath.

Parathas are one of the conventional main course dishes and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner and is an ideal tiffin box recipe. I have already published aloo paratha, broccoli paratha and one more addition to the list is this Gobi paratha which I am publishing it today. Gobi, otherwise also known as cauliflower belongs to the cabbage family and it is available mostly during winter seasons. The one which we get during other seasons is usually sumptuous. Gobi paratha, is very tasty but cleaning the gobi is really a pain in the neck as it contains lots of insects within and you should have an eagles eye while cleaning them.

This is an excellent breakfast recipe and goes on well with garlic or coconut chutney but I usually prefer garlic chutney for this stuffed akki rotti. The process is a bit messy but once it is prepared, it tastes awesome.
