Palak paratha

I make palak parathas so that my kid will eat palak in paratha form.

Ingredients: Half a bunch of palak leaves,cleaned & cut finely,one large cup of atta,1 tbsp besan,1tbsp oil,1 tsp lal mirch powder,1/2tsp haldi,1/4 tsp hing,1/2 tsp ajwain,1/2 tsp til( seasame seeds), 1/2 cup chaas  & salt to taste.

Method :Take atta , add all the lal mirchi powder,haldi,besan,ajwain,til,hing & mix .Now add palak leaves which have been finely cut to the atta mixture .Add chaas to this atta & make it into a soft dough.You can add water if you feel that the dough is too hard.

Now make lemon sized bowls of this mixed dough & roll into chapatis.Heat a tawa & put the chapati on that.Apply oil on the uncooked side.After the chapati changes color, turn it over & again apply oil on the side which is cooked.After the chapati becomes yellowish brown ,take it off from the tawa.

Repeat with other lemon sized balls & make remaining parathas.

Ajwain is to control flatulence & til to provide iron in the parathas.Palak parathas can be served with dahi & achar.I have used chaas instead of water to give a tangy taste.You can use dahi instead of chaas or even plain water for kneading the dough.
