NOTE : 
  • Adding of onions may make this Recipe Cabbage onion Parantha , but then if you do not want to add onions you can skip it , add 3-4 cups of finely chopped cabbage instead of 2 cups , if you are not adding onions to it. ( I usually add onions , to give more flavour to my paranthas ) 
  • Increase or decrease the number of green chilies as per your preferences .
  • If you want more spicy you can add more 1/2 tsp red chilly powder. ( spicy red chilly powder )
  • If you are adding red chilly powder which is less spicy then add 1 tsp or more instead of 1/2 tsp.
  • If you want you can add crushed kastri methi too to the cabbage mixture add preferably before switching off the gas .
  • You can add 1/2 tsp amchur powder too .
  • You can even make stuffed cabbage parathas like we make alu / aloo paranthas , for that make sure you roll gently or else the stuffing will tend to ooze out .
