There are some recipes which though I make regularly, never click the photo and post the recipe here. Always avert thinking that…..next time I’ll definitely post ! And this is one of those ! A very healthy, nutritious, full of health benefits and yummy broccoli parathas can be eaten with any kind of accompaniment or with plain thick curd. Garlic and garam masala powder can also be added for that extra flavour. But I never like to add those.
