  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 12 chapatis 1x


Broccoli Paratha made with shredded broccoli that’s stuffed inside whole wheat atta dough. Healthy paratha recipe.


  • Chapati dough
  • 2 Broccoli heads
  • 3 green chillies
  • 1 inch piece ginger
  • 1 tablespoon besan (chickpea flour)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Atta – Whole wheat flour for dusting
  • 2 tablespoon sunflower oil / ghee
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Shred the broccoli in a food processor. While shredding broccoli, add in green chillies and ginger along with the broccoli and shred.
  2. Heat a pan and add in the finely shredded broccoli mixture along with a tablespoon of chickpea flour (besan) and salt.
  3. Saute for around 5 minutes till the mixture looks dry. Set aside to cool completely.
  4. Take a golf ball size of dough and slightly flatten the dough on a well floured surface. Make a small ball out of broccoli mixture ( a lime size ball) and place it in the middle of the flattened dough.
  5. Stretch the dough and pick up the edges of the dough and pinch on top. Keep doing it until the entire broccoli ball is covered and closed.
  6. Repeat with the remaining dough mixture. Let the dough balls rest for at-least 5 minutes before proceeding.
  7. Dust the dough ball generously in flour. Roll gently to a 4-5 inch circle.
  8. Heat a griddle and sprinkle oil on the griddle. Place the rolled dough on the griddle. Sprinkle oil to the top of the paratha and cook for a minute. Flip over and cook for a minute more. Cook till its golden and brown spots appear all over the paratha on both the sides.
  9. Serve hot.
