Broccoli Paratha

- Submitted by Dahlia on 12th Jan 2008

(Broccoli Paratha, Broccoli Chapatti)

This paratha is a small variation to the traditional parathas. Instead of stuffing the vegetables inside rolled out rotis, we grind the vegetable into a smooth paste and add the paste to the atta while kneading the dough. So am not sure whether to name it as paratha or vegetable chapatti. Whatever be the name given, it is definitely a healthy food and an easier way to eat the vegetables.

This method is especially easy for making parathas with watery vegetables like spinach (palak chapatti), avocado chapatti, radish (mooli chapatti), turnip (shalgham chapatti), tofu chapatti etc.

Broccoli is very very healthy. Start using it little by little in sabzis. Don't make it the main ingredient but add it along with other veggies that you like. You can also try making broccoli bajji. Slowly you will start liking it. Personally I like broccoli when it is little crunchy (not overcooked).
