How to Make Masala Palak Paratha

  • Cool down the mixture and grind it to a fine paste.

  • Add required water little by little and knead it to a soft dough.
  • Then divide the dough into equal lemon-sized balls.
  • Flour the surface and take one ball and flatten it.
  • Then start rolling it gently to a thin paratha (as there is no stuffing).
  • Heat a dosa tawa, transfer the parathas, drizzle a little oil and cook till brown spots appear then turn over to other side and cook.
