Spinach Paratha (Palak Paratha)

Spinach Paratha is a good way to sneak in healthy greens into meals, adding a little sesame seeds gave it a hint of nutty flavor and some added nutrients.

A very nutritious and beautiful looking bread it is!

1/4 tsp asafetida(Hing)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder(haldi)
1/2 tsp salt
Some Butter for frying

1. Wash and drained spinach, grind together with all the ingredients listed (beside whole wheat flour) above using a chopper or grinder with very little water to form a thick paste.

2. Knead the spinach paste with whole wheat flour to form a soft dough, adjust consistency by adding a little water or whole wheat flour accordingly.

3. Let the dough rest for 10-15 minutes. Divide it into 8-10 equal size balls.(Around ping pong size)
