Carrot-Broccoli Stuffed Paratha

I know… I know…

Ever since my dear friend Tanu called me ‘Paratha Queen’, I haven’t posted any :P But recently while exploring this space through recipe-index, had a glimpse of all stuffed parathas I have posted before… And that temptation :) It made me try a new stuffing again…

Well, there is another reason as well.. Didn’t I tell you about my local foodie group? We (admins) thought of running a weekly series theme based) on that group and I thought I should contribute on the 1st day itself… ;)

So, considering both the situations, I decided to use those “Idle” sitting carrots and broccoli head for a new creation! And see… this is what I did! Ohhh yes… I served it with masoor dal tadka, yogurt and pickle! And it was one of the best stuffed parathas I have made (and had).

SJ’s NOTE:

Adjust the spice amount to your taste. I prefer mild to medium.
