Broccoli Stuffed Paratha / Broccoli Paratha / How to make Broccoli Stuffed Paratha.

Broccoli Paratha
Ingredients for stuffing
Grated broccoli-1cup
Grated ginger-1/2tsp
Chilly powder-a pinch
Turmeric powder-little
Grated green chillies-1
Salt to taste
Jeera /cumin powder-1/4tsp
Other ingredients
Whole wheat flour-2 cups
Milk-1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Water required amount
Oil-1tsp + to make parathas
(make a soft dough using above ingredients)
Mix all stuffing ingredients together except salt & keep it aside for 10 minutes.(I usually keep it open for all the moisture to evaporate & mixture is dry)Just before making the parathas/parata add salt to the mixture.Take a small amount of dough,shape it like a cup,keep little filling inside.Close & seal it well & roll it out slowly into thick parathas,make sure the filling doesn't come out.Cook it on tawa/griddle in medium flame till brown on both sides by brushing oil.Serve it hot with raita or any gravy .

Note: Once the filling is sealed well,flatten it & prick it once with a fork on top. By this the air inside the filling will release & while rolling out your filling will not come out.I usually follow this method for any stuffed paratha.
