Palak Paratha

Palak Paratha My all time favorite. It is an Indian flatbread made with wheat flour, ofcourse spinach , some spices & pan fried with ghee/oil. I have add the boiled spinach directly to the flour. You can also grind the spinach & add to the what flour to make the dough. Its very easy to make, healthy & tasty too. U can have it with any curry or raita, or chutney.


•2 cups Atta/ wheat flour
•Spinach washed & chopped- 2 cups
•1 tsp  ajwain/ cumin seeds
•1/2 tsp red chilli powder
•Salt to taste
•Ghee/ oil to make paratha


• Boil the spinach for 2 mins. till they cooked . Cool them 
•Take a bowl . Add  ajwain,  red chilli  powder, salt to taste & add wheat flour. Mix well. Add  the spinach and mix all together, Make a smooth dough. Keep the dough aside  for 1 hours.
•Divide the dough into equal-sized portions and Make small balls.
•Roll each ball into a circle of 7-8" diameter (5-6mm thick).
•Heat a griddle .Put a paratha on the griddle. Do the first flip when you see tiny bubbles rise on the surface of the paratha. As soon as the first flip is done, drizzle a bit of the remaining ghee on the top and spread well over the surface of the paratha. Flip again in 30 seconds and drizzle ghee on this surface too. 
The paratha is done when both sides are crispy and golden brown. Serve hot with any curry or chutney or curd..
