Spinach ( Palakura as called in telugu) is a leafy vegetable. It is rich in Vitamin A, C, K, Magnesuim and iron. Spinach paratha is prepared with spinash, wheat flour and some spices. It is easy to cook, looks green in colour and tastes good.
Spinach: 1 large bunch.
Wheat Flour: 2 cups
Cumin powder: 1 tsp
Red chilli powder: 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil to cook Parathas.
Take spinach in a bowl cut into small pieces. Grind it to make a puree.
Take a large bowl add spinach puree, wheat flour, cumin powder, salt, red chilli powder and 1 tsp oil. Mix it well to form a soft dough. You don't need to add water to mix the flour as spinach puree itself contains water. Knead the dough by adding 1 tsp oil.
Prepare small balls with the dough. Take one ball and roll it with a rolling pin into a small circle. Grease oil on it and fold it twice to form a triangle. Roll it again with the rolling pin to form a large disc.
Preheat the tava and place the rolled paratha on it. When the paratha bubbles add 1/2 tsp oil and flip it to other side. Cook the paratha completely.
Serve hot with Yogurt, Sauce or any Raita.
