Palak paratha/ Spinach flatbread

  This is my daughter's favorite. I gave her with a little sugar, she really enjoyed the paratha and asked for more.Spinach is a good source of folic acid and is considered to be a rich source of iron as well.


1 bunch of spinach
2 cups of wheat flour
1 cup of water
1 tbsp of milk(room temperature)
2 tbsp of all purpose flour(maida)
1 tsp of ajwain
1 tsp of red chilly powder
1 tsp of cumin powder
oil as required*
salt as required


1.Chop the spinach leaves  and cook them in the non-stick pan. Add red chilly powder and cumin powder and saute them for 5 minutes.
2.In a bowl, add the wheat flour, maida, cooked spinach, ajwain,   milk and salt. Add water to the flour and knead them in to a dough.
3.Set it aside for 30 minutes. Take a lemon-sized dough and roll it in to a small circle. Add 1/4 tsp of oil and fold in to half and fold again to make a triangle. (This makes the paratha fluffy). 
4.Roll the dough again to make it a thin layer.
5.In a preheated pan add the thin layer of dough and add oil to the edges. Turn to the other side add oil again. Roast till the paratha turns golden brown.
