A fabulous stuffing of vibrant broccoli, peppy coriander and gooey cheese makes this paratha a five-star rated delicacy that is sure to thrill your family and friends. The rustic taste of broccoli goes very well with the mild and nutty taste of cheese, all of which is enhanced beautifully by the addition of coriander. Since the stuffing mixture is coarsely textured, we suggest simply folding the parathas into semi-circles and cooking them as such instead of the traditional way of folding them in and rolling them again, which sometimes leads to leaks! It is also important to cook the parathas with ghee to get a splendid aroma and crisp texture. Done the right way, you will find the Broccoli and Cheese Parathas easy to prepare, and also thoroughly enjoy the brilliant mix of textures and flavours in them.

This is like a broccoli and cheese quesadilla Indian style. If I was making a paratha I would add a little onion and ajwain.
