Just like millions of Indians, I often make parathas for breakfast. I make mostly traditional parathas; however, parathas are so tantalizingly flexible to experimentation that I decided to make Broccoli Paratha. This amazing vegetable filled in the paratha creates a unique taste and color which is appealing and delicious. The paratha can be had with plain dahi or with your choice of curry or achaar. Broccoli Paratha is made by filling grated broccoli with other spices in the whole-wheat kneaded balls and cooked on a tawa with some desi ghee. You can get more creative and fill in different mixture of broccoli with onions or cottage cheese or maybe cauliflower. Let’s see how to make Broccoli Paratha with this easy-to-follow recipe.
