Broccoli paratha recipe, How to make broccoli paratha

Broccoli paratha is a quick and easy to make healthy Indian flatbread with broccoli and spices as stuffing. This paratha tastes great with plain curd/ pickle and can be served as breakfast, lunch or dinner as well. This is an excellent and yummy way to consume broccoli even for those who hate it will also relish it. I have made the stuffing just like regular stuffed paratha by placing stuffing in the center and flattening the dough, If you are beginner and worried about the stuffing spilling out then you can roll a ball of dough like a regular chapati and then spread little filling over it evenly and then place another rolled chapati and seal the ends. This way the stuffing will be intact. So thinking of a different and healthy start for tomorrow try this paratha and let me know how it tasted. So let’s get yo the making!
