This week was rather hectic...kids not well...Homey on tour.....and before I knew it was Thursday!!! .....I had made palak paratha a few days ago...I love making parathas with greens...kids love them in their lunch box...today its methi paratha in their lunch box.....the best part is that you can saute the greens and keep in fridge for 2 or 3 days...I usually do this and mix them with wheat flour in the morning ...usually for kids lunch box.
Spinach/Palak leaves: 1 bunch, cleaned and chopped.
Jeera: 1/2 tsp.
Oil: 1 tsp.
Chilly powder: 1/2 tsp.
Whole wheat flour/atta: 1 1/2 cups.
1. Wash and clean the leaves and chop them up.
2. Heat oil in a pan and put in jeera and when it splutters switch off fire and put in the red chill powder and give it a stir and add the chopped leaves, salt, again switch on the fire and fry the leaves on medium heat till water evaporates. When it is done at this stage you can cool it and refrigerate it to make paratha after a day or two or can mix in whole wheat flour and make parathas.
3. Mix this with 1 1/2 cups of wheat flour add water as necessary and roll into a smooth dough.
4. Roll out into rotis.
5. Heat a tawa and cook them on both side....drizzle ghee/butter/vegetable shortening on either side and serve hot with raita or any dal/veg curry.
