Broccoli Peas Paratha

Finally some fresh broccoli!!!!
Sounds strange but my kid just loves broccoli. Generally kids are pretty fussy about eating anything green.

Broccoli is high in vitamin C, as well as fiber; it also contains multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties. Peas are high in fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. And the combination of these two -  a full fledged immunity booster...

Well, in short this paratha  is a fully loaded multi vitamin shot.... and what more it tastes really good. Specially with Aam ka Achar.


1 Cup        Broccoli
1/2 Cup     Peas
1 1/2 Cup  Boiled Potatoes (mashed)
1/2 Cup     Paneer (optional)
2 tsp          Finely chopped green chillies
1/2 tsp       Chaat masala
1/2 tsp       Jeera powder
1/2 tsp       Dhania powder
1/2 tsp       Namak Shamak
1/2 cup      Coriander leaves
2 cups       Whole Wheat Atta
Ghee for roasting


Boil the peas and the broccoli in a little salt water for 5 to 10 mins. When cooked drain and reserve the water. 
Use the water to knead the whole wheat atta. Make a dough and keep covered.

In a bowl, take the boiled potatoes, green chillies, the cooked broccoli and peas. Add the salt, jeera powder, dhania powder, chaat masala and the coriander leaves. Add the grated paneer (optional) and mix.

Make small ball of the dough. Make a small vati of the dough and fill it with the filling and close it.

Roll out the parathas lightly.

Heat a tawa and roast the parathas on medium heat using a little ghee.

These taste good with curd or Aam ka achaar.
