Broccoli paratha recipe
Gj likes to have broccoli in his meals at least once in a week because of its health benefits. For me, I like to eat broccoli only in certain dishes like biryani, noodles, pulao and fried rice.
Last week, my friend shared this broccoli paratha recipe. I gave it a try that evening itself and the taste was simply “Wow”. Gj simply loved it. We had it along with onion raita or even boondi raita. For those who don’t like broccoli much, you can consider making this broccoli paratha. You will definitely relish it.
