Which is better raw stuffing or sauteed stuffing for Gobi paratha
To me it is better to saute the grated cauliflower with spices for stuffing. As all the moisture of cauliflower become dry and the paratha become more crisp. And can be kept for long hours for lunch boxes or other take aways.
If we stuffed raw cauliflower then after few minutes the paratha become soggy due to continuous release of moisture. And it can not be kept for long hours.
