Method

Make a soft dough out of the flour and water. Knead it till it becomes soft and smooth. Add oil into it.

Grate the Broccoli florets with the help of a grater. You can also grind the Broccoli in a grinder. In the grated broccoli add some salt and keep it aside for 5 mins. It will leave water, squeeze it tightly with your palms to remove excessive water.

Now heat a pan on medium heat and put 1-2 tbsp of olive oil into it. Once the oil heats up add the grated broccoli to it. Saute it for 2-3 minutes by adding some more salt, red chilli powder and garam masala. Once sauteed, put the heat off and take the mixture in a plate.

For the paratha, make a small ball from the dough and roll it to make a circle. Spread some flour and put the stuffing in the center of the rolled dough. The flour will absorb the excessive water of the stuffing. Now carefully close the paratha from the center so the the stuffing does not come out. Softly start rolling the paratha with light hands by dusting it with flour on both the sides.

 

On a medium heated tawa, cook the paratha from both sides. When you start observing brown spots, sprinke some oil and cook for some more time.

The Parathas are ready. Serve hot with green chutney or dahi!!

Enjoy

About Ankita

Hello All, "No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing." I was never into cooking nor i was a foodie. But recently, after my marriage, i developed this new hobby. All thanks goes to my husband. He is a big time foodie, a great cook and a solid critic and above all an amazing photographer. From him, i learned the basics of cooking & started showing interest. This blog is a result of encouragement and appreciation which i always get from my family & friends. I basically belong to the historical city Gwalior (M.P). Presently, my abode is New Jersey (US). So i spend most of my time in cooking and trying new recipes. I am a fun loving, down-to-earth and a spiritual person (i guess). My ideology is "What you do, so shall you fill". I firmly believe in Karma. Karma comes after everyone eventually. So one shall mind their deeds. Being a classical singer my Love for Music (mainly Indian) is never ending. Music makes my day. My interests also include calligraphy, meditation and as a proud wife of a good photographer and a very good cook i have started showing interest in these areas also. This is all about me! Thank you and I invite all to share their recipes and give their valuable suggestions..!! Good Day!! Enjoy!!
