A simple dish of boiled or parboiled broccoli seasoned with salt and pepper is a soul-warming and nourishing food that you will love to eat any day. However, this interesting vegetable can be cooked into many more delectable dishes.

While soups , pastas and baked dishes using broccoli are very common because this vegetable is abundantly used in international cuisine, you will be amazed to note that it lends itself to yummy Indian dishes like parathas and tikkis too.

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.

Potatoes are an excellent food choice in you first trimester and even the pre-pregnancy period when you need to stock up on folic acid and iron. The skin of the potato (which we always discard) is edible and is a rich source of folic acid. If you scrub the potatoes really well before you cook them, you do not really need to peel them. Broccoli is another good source of folic acid apart from providing for plenty of fibre. The cheese and cream add calcium to this dish and the red pepper is great for vitamin C.
