- 2 cups Spinach, chopped
- 1 cup Atta (Wheat flour)
- Ghee, for dough and for cooking
- ¼ teaspoon Ajwain (Carom seeds)
- ¼ teaspoon Red Chili powder
- Salt, to taste
Procedure for making Palak Parantha
- Put flour, chopped spinach, salt, red chili powder, carom seeds and 1 tablespoon ghee in a deep wide bowl.
- Use little water to knead the dough as spinach has enough moisture itself. Using too much water might soften the dough too much.
- Make 4 balls of dough, take a ball and dust it in dry flour.
- Roll it with the help of a rolling pin into a circle.
- Put griddle or tawa on medium heat and grease it will a little ghee.
- Once the tawa heats up, carefully put the paratha on it.
- Cook from one side and flip it to cook from other side too.
- Put ghee or oil and roast the parantha till brown spots can be seen on both surfaces.
- When done, transfer to a serving plate and serve hot.
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
- Clean and wash the spinach thoroughly before cutting.
- Knead the dough just 5 – 10 minutes before making parantha otherwise the dough might become very soft thus making it difficult to roll.
