Broccoli Paratha

broccoli parathe
Wheat Flour - 3 cups
Broccoli - about 300 gms
Cayenne Pepper - 2 tsp
Cumin/Jeera seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/8 tsp
Chat Masala or Aamchur - 1/4 tsp
Butter or Oil

1. In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour and salt.  Knead into a soft dough using water.  Use oil if required to make it softer.  Cover and keep it aside for 30 - 45 minutes.
2. Wash the broccoli florets in hot water (with 1 tsp salt).  Drain the water and let the florets strain for some 20 minutes in a strainer or colander.
3. Grate the broccoli florets. 
4. Stuffing: Heat about 1 tbsp oil in a pan/skillet and add cumin seeds.  After few seconds, add grated broccoli and saute till broccoli gets cooked.  Add salt, garam masala, chat masala, cayenne pepper and cook till all the ingredients get mixed well.  Saute till all the moisture is lost.  Stuffing must be dry.  Let it cool.
5. Make round balls of the wheat dough and roll each one big enough (about 4 - 5 inch diameter) to hold the stuffing.
6. Place little stuffing in the centre and gather the edges into a round ball.  Roll the stuffed ball gently dusting wheat flour, like chapati or slightly thicker.
7. Heat a pan/tawa and roast rolled stuffed parathas both sides using butter or oil.
8. Serve hot parathas with curd, chutney, pickle or curry.
