How to Make Special Palak Parathas

  • Finely chop the spinach, green chillies and onion.
  • Coarsely crush the garlic flakes.
  • Wash the spinach well and put it in boiling water for a couple of minutes.
  • Drain out the water and cool the spinach.
  • Take the wheat flour in a thali.
  • Add it to the spinach, green chillies, onion, garlic, cumin seeds, ajwain, red chillies powder, oil and salt to taste.
  • Take just enough water to make a little stiff dough.
  • Make dough just before you want to make the parathas as spinach has a lot of water content.
  • Divide the dough into equal portions.
  • Roll each portion into a triangular paratha.
  • Roast the paratha on a pre-heated tawa on a medium flame applying little ghee when flipping sides till the parathas are golden in colour.
