Spinach Chapathi

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.



Ingredients:

1 cup Wheat flour
1.5 cup fresh Spinach leaves
2 cloves Garlic
2 Green chillies
1 tsp Cumin seeds
Salt
Oil

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.




Makes about 7-8 medium size chapathis


Sending this to Veggie/Fruit a month -Spinach event at Rasoi, an event started by Priya.

My favourite chapathi, sounds healthy & delicious, can be enjoyed with fresh curd.

The Weight Watcher said...

Wow, it looks deceptively like an everday chapathi, hiding all the spinach goodness in it! :)

This recipe is so simple- i usually make a dry curry out of the spinach and then incorporate it into the chapathi dough.. this is way simpler... WIll definitely do it this way the next time! :)
