Forget the boring roti canai, tosei or anything else because this is my new favourite! It’s like an upgraded version of chapati. So how on Earth I found out about gobi paratha kan? Remember back in the early 2000s, Bollywood was huge that time, some movies like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Devdas made millions at the box office. Mujhse Dosti Karoge was one of them. Typical romantic film about the love triangle of three good friends and so on.
So there’s a scene where Pooja (Rani Mukherjee) arrives for a job interview in London and sebagai kawan yang dalam diam jatuh hati dengan Raj (Hrithik Roshan), dia masakkan his favourite gobi paratha. Ever since then I was wondering macam mana lah rasa gobi paratha. That was in 2002 ye.
Cut it short, I feel so lucky to be working with the company I am with now. We always go out together for company outing, dinner and we even have our favourite spot for Indian food (Sentral Chappati House) on Fridays 😉 Bila kita bekerja dan bercampur dengan bukan ‘orang kita’ sahaja, we get to learn many more wonderful things. My colleague from India can tell us and share stories about the food termasuk its history to what it’s made of and so on.
A fluffier version of chappati, dalam gobi paratha ada mashed cauliflower and cili (sometimes they put cili padi hijau so it can be a bit spicy lah). It tastes realllllyyy good dan sangat mengenyangkan. Usually with the chappati biasa boleh makan 2 keping sekali jalan, tapi dengan gobi paratha satu je pun cukup. If you want to give it a try, pergi Sentral Chappati House in Brickfields, near KL Sentral. Ask for gobi paratha and they will serve you hot and pair with a glass of cold mango lassi (yogurt drink) for that extra ‘umppphhh’.
