Easy Vegetable Paratha Recipe

A Very Special Vegetable Paratha Recipe

So a while back I took a poll on what you guys wanted to see on lifesfinewhine and a large number of you asked for vegan/vegetarian recipes and so I decided to finally post one. I actually have so many ready in my drafts I just never get time to edit the pictures and post them. Anyway, this recipe is extra special because it’s not one of mine it’s actually all the way from Niarobi from my mum! She has been trying so many new recipes these days and you guys know how nothing compares to a mothers cooking so I told her that the next time she makes something new/fun she should send me images and the recipe so I can share it with you guys. She decided to send this recipe because it turned out really good and it’s actually quite simple to make. Plus it’s vegan- my parents are vegetarian but the majority of the stuff they eat is vegan. I hope you enjoy this very special recipe!


1/2 cup grated cabbage
1/2 cup grated cauliflower
1/2 cup grated broccoli
1/2 cup sliced onions
1/2 tsp of grated/minced ginger
1/2 tsp of minced/chopped garlic
Cumin powder
Cumin seeds
Black pepper powder
2 cups plain flour/wheat flour

Instructions for the paratha

1) Mix either two cups of plain flour or two cups of wheat flour with 1/2 tsp of salt (or to taste), 2 tbsp of oil and add water to the mixture as needed. Make sure the dough isn’t too loose.

2) Let the dough rest for 20-30 minutes.

Instructions for the stuffing

1) Mix the cabbage, onions, cauliflower, ginger, garlic and broccoli.

2) Add salt and paprika as per your taste, 1 tsp of cumin powder, 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds and 1/2 tsp of black pepper powder to the vegetables and stir fry them with a bit of oil till they are sautéed.

Tip: For a more spicy kick add a little more paprika and for a more mild flavour add a little less paprika or no paprika at all. 

Instructions for the stuffed paratha

1) Take about 3 tbsp of the finished dough and roll it into a circle.

2) Take the stuffing and add about 3-4tbsp of the stuffing to the center.

3) Make sure you have moved the stuffing around and it is laying flat on the center of the round paratha.
4) Now fold it three times as shown below.

5) Add a bit of oil to the pan and let the paratha heat on both sides until it is golden brown.

6) Once it is fully cooked you can enjoy it with dahi with spices or if you’re vegan like me you can eat it with ketchup/hot sauce/vegan ranch.

  1. Ohh, I wanna try this! Is it important to have the same pan like you used to make it?

    1. Nope feel free to use any pan you have. Let me know how it turns out if you make it!!

      1. Great!! And will do. Thank you 😊

        1. My pleasure!

  2. Oh it looks delicious and easy. Thanks for sharing, Pooja ♥️

    1. I agree. Looks tasty😋

    2. Thank you and you should definitely give it a try!

  3. I add the veggies directly into the wheat flour and then make the dough. I will definitely try this version.

    1. Ooh that’s interesting- I’ll try your version!

  4. Pooja that is excellent. What about great cooks like me who can’t figure out the right side up of a pan? 😊😊

    1. Thank you! I was like that too when I first started cooking but you just have to go for it- after a few tries you’ll get the hang of it!

  5. Yum. On your next assumption post I’m going to assume that your mom is a great cook.

    1. Haha you assume correctly!

  6. This looks amazing. I’m going to try this. Thanks

    1. Let me know how it turns out!

  7. Can we roll these to flatten the paratha even more with a rolling pin?
    Some people like thin parathas…
    Looks yummy.
    Any substitute for paprika?

    1. I’m not sure about roling them but I’ll ask my mum and let you know. Black pepper alone is good if you don’t add the paprika and non-spicy gochugaru if you have that would work too.

  8. I wanna try this soon. Looks so yum.

    1. Let me know how it turns out!

  9. I might try this if I can get broccoli and cauliflower. My husband thinks that this will work with just shredded cabbage which we usually buy. I really want to make the recipe properly.

    1. Your husband is right- I make it with just cabbage and onions a lot- but to be honest the more vegetables you use the better it tastes. If you make it let me know how it turns out!

  10. Thank you so much !

    1. Glad you enjoyed the post!

  15. That looks absolutely delicious. Way back, when we had Afghan neighbours, they used to make something very similar, and I loved it! Can’t wait to try your recipe. Will have to make it gluten free though, so it would need some slight adaptations, but that shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

    1. Ooh that’s so interesting! Let me know how the gluten free version turns out I would love to know.

  16. Thanks for sharing! Looks delish ! 😋

    1. Let me know how it turns out! I think this is a relatively healthy recipe and I think you’ll enjoy it.

  19. We often eat parathas. But now only I learned how to make parathas..

  24. This looks yummy!! Something I definitely want to try!

    1. Let me know how it turns out if you try it!!

      1. I definitely will! My boyfriend is Vegan so I have been looking for more things to make that we can BOTH enjoy!

        1. Oh yay a fellow vegan! So much Indian and African food is already vegan or very easy to make vegan so I would definitely recommend trying those recipes because I feel like everyone can enjoy them not just vegans. If you’re ever thinking of making Kenyan food I would recommend Ugali and Sukuma (minus the meat)- you guys will love it!

          1. Ha yes! I’ve made vegan jerk “chicken” and vegan “chicken” parm which came out amaazing! I googled those and I have to make it because I’m a huge fan of Kale 😍 Thank you!

            1. Ooh I made jerk “chicken” too using the Gardien vegan chicken. I love jerk sauce so much! Yeah sukuma is basically made of mostly just kale so you will love it! I usually add a little bit of spinach too.

              1. We loveeeee Gardien!!! I forgot if it was the same brand or not but we also like these buffalo “chicken” bites put in the air fryer 👌🏾 Delicious!

                1. I’ve been meaning to try the buffalo ones but I they’ve been out of stock. They sound so good!

  25. This looks very tasty…i will try

    1. Let me know how it turns out!

  26. I love aloo paratha.

    1. Yes they are delicious!
