1. For the Filling: Wash the spinach, cut the stem out and chop the spinach leaves. Dissolve some salt in warm water and keep chopped spinach in salty warm water for 15-20 min. Squeeze the water out from the chopped spinach and make coarse paste of chopped spinach in the blender or grinder. Do not make smooth paste otherwise your Spinach paratha will be difficult to roll. If you are using frozen chopped spinach, defrost it at room temperature just keeping out from the freezer before 2 hours of cooking it.

2. Chop the chillies finely.

3. Heat the oil in a pan and add spinach. Add chopped chillies, chopped rosemary and mix well.

4. Add turmeric powder, cashew nut paste, coriander powder, garam masala, salt and lemon juice and cook until spinach get dried.

5. For the Dough: Take flour and mix in salt, oil and yogurt. Slowly add the warm water when required and make stiff dough (same as chapatti dough). Cover and keep it aside for at least half an hour.

6. For the spinach Paratha: Knead the dough again for few mins and make equal tennis ball sized balls.

  1. I love palak pratha and try and give this to my picky kids coz they hate eating palak and I like anyother mom find various ways to make them eat healthy and this is one of them :)!

  2. Thanks Anamika. I am glad you have liked it. My little monster had whole paratha when I made last time palak paratha. He just simply love it. He is bit picky when it comes to food but for some reason he loves flat bread and this is his sort of thing.
