Indian GFCF lunch and dinner options

The lunch and  dinner options are usually rice,dal, sabzi and rotis with an ocassional GFCF pasta cooked in Indian style.
                       Rice is simple plain steamed rice.
There are different rotis/parathas that we make for Harish.

Raagi parathas
                          Mix raagi atta,a small boiled potato and1-2 tbsp rice,both mashed to a paste. Add salt, garam masala powder, dhania(coriander powder),fresh cilantro  to this.Bring to dough consistency,preferably  knead  it  by hand . There should no lumps..There is no need to add water.Roll into balls  and use a rolling pin to make it flat.
                           To make stuffed gobi( Cauliflower)/mooli(Radish)  raagi parathas.Roll out  two  small parathas.Sandwich the filling in between these two parthas. Seal the edges and roll it out rounder and bigger.Cook on a tawa with ghee/clarified butter.
                    For harish we make ghee at home,discarding  the brown residue which is the protein part ,caesein.
For the fiilings . for 5-6 stuffed parathas,you need,
 1 med size cauliflower
1 finely grated small onion
salt
Ajwain.
Garam masala
                             Fry the ingredients together till it is cooked.Repeat the same for mooli filling.
