Aloo Gobi Broccoli paratha

Stuffed Paratha2

About:

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!

Health benefits:

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.

For the stuffed paratha:

  • Take a portion of the dough ball and roll out a small disc about 3inches in diameter and place 1-2 tbsp of the stuffing in the center of the rolled disc (make sure not to overstuff the dough) bring the edges of the dough, join them and flatten them and now roll the stuffed paraths gently to a size of a chapatti or roti.
  • Place on the hot skillet and cook till browned and uniformly roasted on both side by brushing some oil if desired.
