Spinach chapathi is a favourite at home. I love this green leafy vegetable and try to add in many dishes. The Spinach/Palak chapathi is not just colourful, but flavorful and very healthy too. Kids might also love the color and its definitely a change for them from the regular chapathis. Kids who do not like spinach may also like these green chapathis, not knowing what they are eating. So its a great way to trick them :)
Spinach chapathi is the usual green chapathi I make at home. Coriander/Cilantro chapathi was an inspiration from this which I have posted earlier. The recipe for Cilantro/Coriander Chapathi can be viewed here.
1 cup Wheat flour
1.5 cup fresh Spinach leaves
2 cloves Garlic
2 Green chillies
1 tsp Cumin seeds
Wash the spinach leaves thoroughly. Grind spinach, garlic, cumin and green chillies into a smooth paste by adding a little water. Sprinkle some salt and oil on the flour. Mix the flour well. Now knead the dough by adding the spinach paste a little at a time.If required, add extra water or yogurt so as to form a smooth dough. Cover and keep aside for 10-15 minutes.Make medium size balls out of the dough. Roll them and fry the chapathis. Apply oil/ghee on both sides if you desire. Serve hot.
I served it with Mint raita. Please view the recipe for Mint raita here.
