In my attempt to provide the family a wholesome breakfast I tried this combination at home and this turned out to be a super hit with the family, something that they cherished and asked for more and more. This is the second preparation with broccoli (remember the stuffed broccoli tikkis) in the last few days that we have thoroughly enjoyed.
I found this as an excellent way to provide an iron and protein rich meal. I was especially delighted as the younger one who is the fussy eater was more than eager to eat it and carried it in his lunch box too.

1 large broccoli flower and stalk grated
200gms cottage cheese grated
4 garlic pods grated
1-1/2 inch piece ginger grated
8-9 green chillies finely chopped
4-5 tbsp. coriander finely chopped
2 tbsp. coriander pwd
1/2 tsp. garam masala
salt to taste
For the dough
3-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tsp. carom seeds

Heat a tea spoon of oil in a non stick pan and sauté the broccoli with a pinch of salt on high flame and let the water disappear. Cool this and all the other ingredients under the heading stuffing to form the stuffing.
Knead a firm dough using the ingredients under the heading dough. Take two ping pong sized dough balls and roll them into a circle of 3inches.
Place double the volume of ping pong ball on one circle and seal it using another circle and roll it into a paratha.
