Now, this is the first recipe i learned from my mil! I was so fascinated by the way leaves were incorporated into the chappathi dough! Something which atleast I was not aware of. Living down south of India, the roti itself was a rare visitor at my house.
Anyways, I made these for dinner last week and obviously this recipe found its spot in my blog because Omy loved it.
Spinach - a bunch
Ginger-garlic paste - 1Tbsp
Melted Jaggery - 5 Tbsp
Salt - to taste
Add spinach to boiling water, and let it cook for 3 minutes or until wilted.
Grind together cooked spinach, jaggery, salt, ginger-garlic paste to a smooth paste.
Now mix in with the dough. Do not add water to it. The spinach paste will have enough water content to knead the dough.
Now make rotis with it. You can replace jaggery with sugar or even avoid it completely.
Look who helped me to roll 'em.
I just had Palak roti and yogurt
