Palak Paratha (Indian Spinach Bread)


3 cups whole-wheat flour
2 cups of palak puree (recipe in step 1)
1 tsp coriander powder
2 garlic pods
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt as per taste
Ghee (clarified butter) to pan-fry the parathas

  1.  Wash Palak under running water and let it dry. Blanch the Palak leaves in a non stick pan and grind the Palak along with 2 garlic pods into a fine paste in your food processor.
  2. Add the coriander powder, cumin powder, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt as per taste to the whole-wheat flour.  Add the palak puree and mix all together, kneading to form a medium-soft, smooth dough. Add some more whole wheat flour if the dough is too soft.
  3. Divide the flour in equal size balls and make thick rotis (parathas)
  4. Take a non stick tawa, put the paratha on it for frying. Add ghee on both sides of the paratha and fry till the parathas are cooked well from both the sides.
  5. Serve with pickle or curds.
