Palak (Spinach) Paratha

Since my 7 year old is a picky eater, all the vegetables hide in Parathas and they are in demand in my house. Last week I got some spinach, and hence prepared the Spinach Parathas.



Ingredients:

1 bunch spinach leaves
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 tsp Garam Masala
1/2 tsp red chilli powder(optional)
2 tsps cumin seeds
1 tsp grated ginger
1 clove garlic (Optional)
salt to taste
Oil - 4 tsps
Water

Method:
  1. Wash the leaves well. Grind the leaves with garlic and ginger, using very less water.
  2. add garam masala, salt, cumin seeds and mix whole wheat flour. Make a medium thickness dough (add water if needed).
  3. Keep aside for 30 minutes. Heat the tawa.
  4. Make medium atta balls and roll and bake like chapati, putting little oil on each side.
  5. Server with Chutney or butter.

Hi Rashmi
I would add 1 tablespoon of besan to the paratha dough. It makes them softer.
