Quick post to share a recipe that I make for Varun. The following recipe make about 3 medium sized parathas.

Ingredients:

  1. Spinach – 1 cup
  2. Grated Cheese (any kind) – 1/4 cup
  3. 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  4. Olive oil – 1 tsp
  5. A pinch of salt
  6. Water – enough to make the dough
  7. Ghee (clarified butter) – 1 tsp (or more)

Procedure:

  1. Blanch spinach by following the steps here. Chop it finely. Save some of the hot water that was used in the process.
  2. Mix flour, cheese, olive oil, salt and chopped spinach. Add water sparingly to make the dough come together.
  3. Let it rest for 10 mins.
  4. Then make small balls out of the dough and roll them out in to parathas
  5. Heat a cast iron pan and fry the parathas one at a time. Start with first side, fry for about 20 secs, turn over, drizzle some ghee. Then flip it again, drizzle a little more ghee and take it off the pan.
  6. Serve with cottage cheese or yogurt.
