Palak Paratha ~ Spinach Paratha

An easy and quick paratha recipe gives great taste and goodness of spinach. Spinach contains large amounts of fiber along with a lot of essential vitamins and minerals. 



Ingredients:
  • Spinach puree- 1 cup
  • Curd- 2 tbsp (optional)
  • Whole wheat flour- 3 cups
  • Green chili paste or crushed- 2 tsp (from 3-4 chilies)
  • Coriander powder- 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder- 1 tsp
  • Carom seeds (ajwain,ova)- ½ tsp
  • Sesame seeds- 2 tsp
  • Asafetida (hing)- ¼ tsp
  • Sugar- 1 tsp
  • Salt- to taste
  • Oil- as required


Method:
  • Combine all the ingredients except curd, puree and oil in a big bowl or a plate.
  • Add 2 tbsp of very hot oil (mohan) in this
  • Add curd, palak puree and mix well. Add water little by little and knead to a soft dough.
  • Divide the dough into small portions.
  • Roll out each portion into a small circle's or desire shape. (Use plastic sheet/paper to roll. Using plastic paper, you can roll the paratha without using extra flour, hence when you are roasting paratha, it will required less oil this way.) 
  • Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook each paratha on both sides, using a little ghee, till brown spots appear on both the sides.
  • Serve hot with fresh curds or pickle.

My daughter don't like spinach, but she eats paratha if I made some fantasy with this. So these triangle paratha for her. A tasty way to fill your children up with the essential minerals and keep them happy and healthy.

Palak/Spinach Puree- Wash and blanch spinach leaves. Blend with little water till smooth. You can store this puree in deep freezer for 2 weeks.


Notes: 
  • You can add garlic in this paratha.
  • You can blend blanched spinach leaves, green chili and garlic (if you are using) together.
