Spinach Chapathi ( version 2)

Hi all...hope you all enjoyed your weekend and we too had a wonderful one :).  I always make Spinach Chapathi by making a puree and then adding it to the flour. I have shared that recipe sometime back and can be viewed here. But today I am sharing another version of Spinach chapathi which I learnt from one of my friends here, Richa. She had made these in one of our potlucks and they got vanished in no time :).  I learnt the recipe that day itself and have made it a few times now. You can see beautiful patterns of spinach leaves in these chapathis, they are delicious and very easy to make. Thank you Richa for sharing this recipe and hope you all will try it out!!




You need..

1.5 cups Wheat flour
a small bunch of Spinach
2 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
2-3 Green chillies finely chopped
3-4 tsp Kasoori methi (optional)
Salt
Oil
Water



To prepare..

Wash the spinach leaves and put them in a microwave safe bowl / plate. Microwave for 3-4 minutes or until wilted. It might leave out water which you can use while kneading. Allow it to cool.

Combine wheat flour, ginger-garlic paste, green chillies, kasoori methi (rub between palms n add), salt and a little oil. Now add the spinach to this, mash well and combine thoroughly. Add water as required and form a smooth dough. Cover with a damp cloth and leave it aside for 10-15 minutes.

Knead again the dough and make small lemon size balls out of the dough. Roll them out and fry the chapathis on the tawa by adding ghee or oil. Serve hot with any raita or sidedish. I served it with some whole moong and a simple onion raita :)



Notes:
* You can adjust the green chillies as per your preference. 
* You can also add red chilli powder or green chilli paste instead, especially if you have kids and they don't like biting the chillies.
