Paratha is an Indian flat bread made with several type of stuffing’s originated from Punjab. Common types of stuffings are potatos, cauliflower, radish and fenugreek leaves. When winter starts, you find Brussels sprouts (German name – Rosenkohl) in most of the super markets in Germany. Its available only during winter season. In this food blog, I have used Brussels sprout stuffing for paratha preparation. It goes well with Yogurt Raitha or thick spicy curry. Paratha stuffing is Kneaded with Atta flour, Paratha can be made same like roti on flat pan(tava).
Brussel Sprout Paratha – I have read somewhere that, Brussels sprouts (kind of green mini cabbage) can provide some special cholesterol-lowering benefits and it has fiber-related components, which makes digestion easier.

Brussels sprouts also offer cancer-preventive components in special combination. Therefore, cooking recipes with Brussels Sprout are very healthy. In Germany, Brussels sprouts (Rosenkohl in German) is available in all supermarkets. I tried to cook Brussels sprouts in many ways, I did not liked it much because of its little bitterness.
