Broccoli Paratha

Broccoli Paratha, a great way to include broccoli into your diet…

My intention was to use up the broccoli that had been sitting in the refrigerator. I usually make soups, stir fries or grill broccolis. This time, I decided to make parathas with it. Tasted good and it’s a great way to sneak broccoli into your kids diet: Nutritious and healthy parathas.
