Spinach Paratha (Palak Paratha)

Deciding what to make for dinner is a challenge for me. Finally made up my mind and made Spinach paratha and Black eyed beans curry for today's dinner. Here is the Spinach Paratha recipe.


2 cups of wheat flour
1tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp Ajwain/Carom seeds (optional)
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 cup finely chopped spinach
salt as per taste
Oil/ghee (Optional) for shallow frying.


Mix all the ingredients thoroughly. Now add water little by little to the mixture and make a soft dough.

Cover the dough with damped cloth and keep it aside for 15 mts.
Take small piece of dough and shape into small balls.

Roll these dough balls into round shaped dusting with flour as needed.

Heat a pan/griddle and place paratha on the pan.
Cook both sides of the paratha evenly by adding few drops of oil till it turns golden brown color.

Serve these parathas with curry or raita.
