For Dough

  • 1 1/4 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • Salt to taste

For Broccoli & Cheese Filling

  • 1 1/2 cups Broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup Cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp Coriander chopped
  • 1 tbsp Garlic and Green Chili Paste
  • 1/2 tsp Kitchen King masala or garam masala optional
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Oil for Shallow Frying


For Dough

  1. Knead a medium soft dough with aata (whole wheat flour), salt and water as required.
  2. Cover and keep the dough aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into small portions. Should make 6 small rounds.

For Broccoli & Cheese Filling

  1. Steam broccoli for 3 to 5 minutes in salted boiling water.
  2. Take broccoli out and drain the water.
  3. Finely chop broccoli or use a food processor to coarsely grind broccoli.
  4. Take the ground broccoli out on a muslin cloth.
  5. Fold the muslin cloth around the broccoli and squeeze excess water out. You can even collect the broccoli water to knead the dough later.
  6. Mix together squeezed and dry broccoli, cheese, coriander, garlic and green chili paste, salt, pepper and kitchen king masala (if using).
  7. Roll a round dough into a small round first. Put 2 tbsp of the broccoli filling in the center.

  8. Enclose the broccoli filling from all sides and pinch in the center.
  9. Now roll the paratha lightly using enough flour into 1/4 inch thickness.
  10. Cook the paratha on a hot griddle and flip it once one side is cooked.
  11. Now wait for the other side to cook, then drizzle some oil on the sides and the parathas will instantly fluff up.
  12. Flip once again and apply oil on both sides properly.
  13. Cook till golden brown. Similarly cook all the parathas and serve hot.
