I love browsing around supermarkets and grocery stores. When going abroad I love checking out the huge supermarkets and specialty shops. Clothes, I just pick the first thing I see usually without even trying them, but I take hours in supermarkets, much to hubby's amusement. A few months back I came across this new kind of Atta flour , by Pillsbury.
The packet read that it contained 7 grains. So of course I bought it seeing it was packed with all these healthy grains.
I remember seeing this recipe in a old Tarla Dalal cookbook , where she makes spinach parathas stuffed with paneer and cauliflower. It was a delicious parata, have played with the recipe a couple of times using different greens until I recently came up with this recipe .....
Recipe : Healthy Broccoli and cheese flat breads
200g broccoli florets , blanched or used frozen broccoli ( thawed)
1/2 " ginger
1 small onion.
small handful of coriander leaves, chopped
1 green chilli , ( optional)
about 3/4 cup water
150 g plain flour
200g Pillbury Atta Multigrain flour or regular Atta flour
3 tbsp ghee
50g grated chedder cheese
Place broccoli, ginger, onion, coriander, into a blender and blend to a smooth paste. Set a side
Sift both flours with salt into a large mixing bowl. Rub in ghee. Make well in the centre and add the pureed broccoli mixture. Mix well till you get a nice piece of dough.
Add the cheese and knead well, with a little extra flour if needed. Roll into about 12- 14 balls and roll to about 1/2 cm thickness.
Heat a large nonstick frying pan , once its quite hot, place one flat bread, once little air pockets puff on the surface, put flip to the other side and cook the other side. cook the rest .
Serve with a nice dal curry or a dry meat or chicken or fish curry.
The boys loved it , so did the hubby. :)
