Spinach Roti/flat bread

Here is one more simple and easy dinner recipe for a week night.


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


In a pan add 1/2 tsp oil and add cumin, carom seeds and chopped spinach and let it cook till spinach loses raw flavor and quickly transfer the mixture into a bowl and leave the bowl on ice bath. This will help to retain the color of spinach.
Once spinach cools down puree it to smooth paste
Mix wheat flour, salt and spinach puree and make into a soft dough. (Do not add water unless you cannot form into soft dough. If needed add water little at a time). If spinach puree is too much then increase the quantity of flour.
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 roti on the pan.
Cook both sides of the flat bread/roti evenly by adding few drops of oil till it turns golden brown color.

Serve these rotis with curry or dal or raita. I made lentils tonight to serve with roti.
