2.  Meanwhile, prepare stuffing for paratha. Pressure cook green gram. It should be about to turn mushy. But not too mushy. Slightly smash it and keep it in a bowl.

4.  Then make big lemon sized balls from the dough and roll it to a small circle. Place the stuffing and wrap the edges to seal the stuffing completely.

Palak Paratha / Spinach Chappathi

Here is the green healthy paratha / chappathi for kids. ;-) The taste will be so yummy that kids who do not eat spinach properly as side dish would love these green paratha. Give a try and leave your comments..!! :-)

Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 15 min
Serves: 2


·         Chappathi flour - 3 cup
·         Thick Curd - 1 tbsp

To saute:

1.      Spinach - 200gm
2.      Turmeric powder - 1 pinch
3.      Chili powder - 1 tsp
4.      Garlic - 2 or 3
5.      Coriander powder - 3 tsp

7.      Salt to taste



1.   Clean spinach/ palak with fresh water and set aside.
2.   Heat a medium sized pan. Add fresh spinach and all other ingredients given in “To saute”. Keep in medium flame for 3 min. Spinach will shrink and become soft. Allow it to cool.

3.   Once it cools down, transfer it to a mixer. Add curd and grind into smooth paste.

4.   Take chappathi flour in a mixing bowl and add spinach paste and make it into dough. Adjust salt. Add little water if required. I did not add water as the water content in the spinach paste was sufficient.

5.   Make balls from the dough of required size and roll it into paratha.

6.   Heat a small flat pan. Cook one side of the paratha and roll-over to the other side. Take it off the pan once both sides are cooked.
Serve hot with raita
