Broccoli Paratha !

Its been a while I posted something and this winter climate is making me lazy or should I say I was busy with some other hobbies :). Finally I managed some time to post this pending one.
Broccoli one of the veggies that I hate to the core, and mostly do not like to eat in any form has taken a new avatar in this way as a paratha. I must mention the Indian spices does its magic and make the broccoli yummy. If you are interested in more Parathas, do check out HERE

INGREDIENTS ( No Onion No Garlic) (Makes 4 to 5 Parathas)

  • Knead wheat flour with salt and little oil to a soft and pliable dough.
  • Grate the broccoli finely leaving the stems.
  •  Heat oil in pan and add Jeera and cumin seeds. Once they turn slightly brown add the finely chopped green chillis, 
  • Saute for few seconds and add the grated broccoli keeping flame in medium.

  •  Saute the broccoli for 30 seconds approx and add all the spice powders and salt.

  • Weave the edges and pinch off the extra. Slowly roll them in to flat circle (with thickness of your choice) securing the filling.

  • Place it on a very hot tawa and cook one side. Flip it and apply some oil / ghee and cook the other side till brown spots appear on the surface.
