Try this simple Palak/Spinach Paratha.. this recipe is great when cooking for children who always hesitate to eat green leafy veggies.
Clean Spinach leaves and wash them gently cleaning its leaves. Chop them roughly.
Boil water in a heavy bottom flat vessel and add a pinch of salt. Add the green chillies and chopped leaves and blanch them for 2-3 minutes.
Now remove the green chillies and the leafy vegetable from vessel. Allow to cool.
Do not discard the water, we will be using this same water for making the dough.
In a mixer make a fine paste of the green chillies, spinach, Ginger-Garlic paste, garam masala and Asafoetida without using water.
In a big bowl, mix in the whole wheat flour and salt to taste. Add the spinach paste and knead to smooth firm dough. Use the spinach boiled water if needed.
Add a teaspoon of oil on the surface of the dough and knead well.
Cover and keep aside for minimum 15-20 minutes.
Now shape the dough into balls.
Using a chapatti roller and rolling pin, spread a dough ball into a small circular shape.
Apply 1/4 Tsp oil on the surface; first fold it to a half circle; apply few drops of oil again and further fold it to a quarter circle to look like a triangle.
Roll this over in dry wheat flour and using the rolling pin roll into shape a circle.
Heat a griddle on medium heat and place the paratha on it.
Lightly grease the paratha with oil and roast till golden brown, flip over with a spatula and grease again and roast till golden brown.
Repeat the process for the remaining dough balls also.
Serve hot with any vegetable or non-veg gravy or with dry spiced vegetables.
