After the delicious Ragi Adai, I have some stuffed parathas, very colourful and so healthy as well. I am talking about including palak into your paratha, and ending up with a beautiful green coloured parathas.
I know I have Kids Delight Colourful dishes coming up shortly and I have been literally breaking my head as to what to make. My hostess has asked us to avoid artificial food colouring. And here I am with a pretty green colour and I could've saved up this recipe for then!. Everything looks good hindsight. Anyway I will have to cross that bridge then.
Now coming to this recipe, I actually made it for dinner and eating and enjoying, I wanted to make for my breakfast as well. So you have a delicious stuffed paratha, for your breakfast and a quick dinner idea as well!
So for BM#49 under Indian Bread Baskets, I have Palak Paratha for the second day!
Palak Paratha | Spinach Roti
Wheat Flour - 3 cups
Palak/ Spinach - 1 bunch / 1 cup puree
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Red Chili powder - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp
Hing a pinch
Turmeric powder a pinch
Salt to taste
Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp
Ghee - 2 tsp
Oil for cooking
How to make Palak Paratha
Wash and clean the spinach leaves. Blanch well and allow to cool. Once the leaves are cooled down, make a puree.
In a bowl, take the wheat flour, add all the spice powders, along with spinach puree, mix well to combine everything.
Then slowly add water to knead to a stiff dough. Let it rest for 10 - 15 mins.
When ready to make, heat the tawa, greast with oil, pinch out balls, dust with flour and roll out into discs.
Cook on hot tawa on both sides.
Once done, serve hot with pickle and curds.
