Broccoli paratha recipe – easy indian bread recipes

             I do buy broccoli quite frequently, not because its a favourite at home. But as its quite healthy and we get really good fresh ones here that I am quite tempted to buy it everytime. Then I do wonder how to use it and mostly end up using it in a mix vegetable curry. Sometimes I make broccoli Manchurian or bake them in the oven with some spices coated on it or simply add them in some dal.

Nowadays I try making stuffed parathas many times as its one way to sneak the vegetables into the kids food. So this time I decided to use broccoli in my parathas. I make cauliflower parathas quite regularly. I just add some grated cauliflower in the atta along with some spices. I thought of doing broccoli the same way. But due to the pungent smell and taste of it, I  cooked it slightly and spiced  it up and then added it to the atta. It was really good and I felt this is the best way of eating your broccoli. Its going to be regular at my place now.
