Green Paratha

I always liked the green colored rotis/parathas. I had seen them in one of my friend’s lunch box. Recently I tried to make them(though the procedure and taste was completely different), they were delicious. I served it with Masala Dahi.

Wheat Flour 2 cup
Palak(Spinach) leaves 1 Cup
Ginger 1″ piece
Green Chillies chopped 5 Nos
Corriander leaves 1/2 cup
Jeera 2 tsp

Mix all the ingredients(except flour) and blend it in a mixer to a fine paste. Mix this mixture with the wheat flour and oil, knead till the dough is smooth and soft.
Make medium size balls of the dough, roll it. Fry paratha on tava, apply ghee on both sides.
Serve hot.

Serves : 5
Preparation time : 20min

    Masala dahi wow sounds good i will try this next time , I usally serve palak rotti with different raitas.

  3. Hi…I tried this yesterday and I enjoyed making something different using palak other than dal palak, palak paneer or alu palak. Thanks for sharing it. It tasted like heaven – I added some ghee on top. I made chole to go along and not the masala curd. We had a typical punjabi lunch with lassi to end the meal! 🙂

  4. Hi Shilpa

    I dont know suddenly last tuesday, i decided to make this paratha, as it is a fasting day for us . I used a little less of mint leaves. Used dhania jeera powder and little dahi in the flour. It tasted great.

  5. Hi ,

    Nice recipe . i used to make palak parathas but adding coriander to it is a good idea . my 2 year old loves it …


  6. its a good idea to blanch the palak…as recently there was a threat of e-coli.
    while doing so we may add bit of onion to it.grind everything.use very little water for kneading.same dough can be used to make palak puris

  11. Hi,
    I wanted to know about this particular green paratha if it can be stored for a couple of days.
    Just like the gujarati Theplas which can be stored for 5-6 days at a stretch.

    Shilpa: You can freeze them to keep them to store for longer time.
