Gobhi Paratha | Stuffed Cauliflower Paratha, and a baby shower celebration for Sapana

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never
existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something
absolutely new 

What does Gobhi Paratha have to do with motherhood, you may
wonder. Today we celebrate with a virtual baby shower for our dear blogger
friend Sapana who is on her way to have a baby soon
! When we discussed this amongst our Blogging Marathon group, we were very
excited to be part of this virtual celebration. Pradnya got out 3 cute options
for a logo, which we were free to choose from, and there was so many whatsapp
and emails going back and forth to discuss the nitty gritty details. Like a
batch of school going kids, we bookmarked recipes quickly and cooked them, and
post them together today:) 


So, here you are Sapana, with me posting Gobhi Paratha cooked from your blog. Wishing
you a very safe and healthy delivery. We eagerly await the arrival of the
little bundle of joy, and hope you and your family will share this happiness
that we present with this virtual baby shower post.

Without further ado, presenting Gobi Paratha (or stuffed
cauliflower wholewheat flat bread) served with Chole (chickpeas curry) : the
classic Punjabi combo for a true blue Punjabi mom. Check out the linky tool at the end of this post to see what a spread we girls have dished for u, Sapana 🙂 

Enjoy girl !
