PALAK PARANTHAS ---- INDIAN BREAD WITH SPINACH

Palak Parantha is a very tasty way of eating your greens. This recipe is a healthy varietion of parantha. It is made with fresh Spinach leaves and whole wheat flour and served with curry and pickle and a cup of curd (yogurt).It can be eaten at break fast,lunch or dinner,and it is perfect food to take for lunch box or picnic.It is good to eat even after a few hours.You can make the dough and keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days and make paranthas when you want.
And here Igo with the recipe of Palak parantha (my variation).
INGREDIENTS:---
Spinach leaves --- 1 bunch very finely choped(or 11/2 cup very finely choped
Wheat flour --- 1 cup
Jawar flour --- 1 cup(insted of jawar you can use 1/2 cup besan and 1/2 cup more wheat flour,this Iused for a change)
Garlic --- 3-4 very finely chopped
Green chilies ---3 finely choped
Onion --- 1 small very finely choped
Cumin seeds --- 1 tea sp fry in a dry pan and crush with hand
salt to taste
Chat masala --- 1/2 tea sp
Oil for frying

Take flour s in abig bowl add spinach mixture, salt to taste.chat masala and make adough and leave for 5 min.
Make 7-8 balls from the dough and roll them in to curcles and make a small hole in the center of the parantha so that it can cook well.
Heat a griddle(parantha pan ) put the parantha let it cook for 1 sec and flip the other side and cook 1 sec. this side also then aply oil both sides and fry till light golden color and remove from griddle.
Serve with any pickle and curd(yogurt)
Ilike to have this with sweet dahi and pickle
For sweet dahi..... for 1 cup well beaten dahi add 1 tab sp grated jaggery(gud, bellam, can use 1 tab sp sugar also)
but here I served with paneer bhurji (paneer bhurji recipe coming up)
