Healthy Broccoli and Cheese Flat Breads

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
pinch salt
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.  :)
