Broccoli and Cheese Paratha

Here’s one of my all time favourite parathas… Broccoli and Cheese Paratha. I first had Broccoli Paratha at a friends house and I was surprised at how delicious it was. For those who know me, know my love for broccoli in any form and I just had to recreate it. Broccoli and Cheese is a match made in heaven so I added my touch of cheese to an already super simple recipe. Here’s my super simple yet really delicious version and a great way to use broccoli.
