Broccoli Paratha

4.50 from 2 votes

Broccoli is an edible green plant in the cabbage family whose large flowering head is eaten as a vegetable. The word broccoli comes from the Italian plural of broccolo, which means "the flowering crest of a cabbage", and is the diminutive form of brocco, meaning "small nail" or "sprout". Broccoli is often boiled or steamed but may be eaten raw. It is healthy and nutritious green vegetable which is used in many recipes. In this recipe I have prepared Broccoli paratha using broccoli, potatoes, onion and seasoned with some masalas. Paratha was yummy, mouth melting, flavorsome.
