Aloo Gobi Broccoli paratha
Parathas (Indian flatbreads) are very popular in India and are typically served for breakfast. However, in the Western world this is served as a side with curries, or as an appetiser. Here in this paratha I used potoato, broccoli, cauliflower as a stuffing.
These parathas are the perfect start to your day. Filled with veggies, these whole wheat stuffed vegan flatbreads are sure to become your new favorite!
Cauliflower and broccoli — along with other veggies, including Brussels sprouts and cabbage — make up the family of cruciferous vegetables. Cauliflower and broccoli are both low in calories. They contain glycosinolates, a family of nutrients that reduce cancer risk. Eating broccoli or cauliflower also boosts your intake of fiber and protein, two nutrients that help you feel satisfied after your meal.
