  • Blanch spinach. Grind it using no water, the paste should be smooth and fine.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the spinach puree along with the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

  • Once done kneading, cover it and keep it aside for 2 hours.

To make the Parathas

  • Grab handfuls of the dough and roll each ball to a thin circle.
  • Heat a panĀ or a flat girdle, place the rolled dough on it and allow it to cook for few minutes on both sides.
