  5. Flip to other side. Now again flatten it slightly with your palms and then start rolling gently. Roll it without the filling oozing out. Dust flour so that it doesn't stick. Heat a dosa tawa , transfer the parathas, drizzle little oil and cook on both sides until born spots appear.

My Notes:

  • While rolling for the first time dont give more pressure in the center as the filling is going to be placed in the center and rolled again so make sure the center part is little thicker.
  • Gently roll the parathas and dust flour as and when needed.
  • Roll your parathas thick or thin as you like it. 
  • I used my chopper to chop broccoli fine.You can use grater / mixer with pulse option.Dont grind it smooth.

  6. I use raw broccoli, either grated of chopped in the chopper, mixed with ginger, salt, pepper, a bit of chilli. The result is amazing, as the broccoli retains its vivid green colour and does not lose its properties through over cooking.

  8. Hey, How did you shred the broccoli? Is that using a Food processor, that point is not clear in the post.
