Punjabi palak parantha, also known as palak masala paratha is here for you. This is a simple and easy hassle free recipe. furthermore, I simply love the green shade of all this paratha.
- Take a bowl and add wheat flour and mix in chopped spinach in it.
- Add salt, green chilies, onion, ginger paste and oil in the flour.
- Knead the dough by gradually adding water.
- Make sure to knead a soft and smooth dough.
- Grease the dough with oil and cover it with damp cloth.
- Let the dough rest for about 30 minutes.
- Now pinch a medium sized ball dough, roll and flatten it with your fingers a little bit.
- With the help of spoon spread some oil in the middle of flatten dough and close the edges.
- Dust some flour on the rolling surface and roll the dough ball in a thin circle like chapathi or paratha. Do not roll it too thin keep it a little thick.
- Heat a tawa on medium flame and put the paratha on it. Let it cook on it for 1 minute.
- When the base of paratha is partially cooked flip the other side.
- Let it cook from the other side until the brown spots appear.
- Spread some oil on top and spread evenly on paratha.
- Flip the side and spread some oil on the other side as well.
- Keep the flame medium and press the paratha gently with a ladle and cook it till brown spos appear on both sides.
- Palak paratha is ready, take it out of tawa.
- Continue the same process with remaining dough.
- Serve hot with pickle or chatni.
- __________________Note: You can make this paratha in another way as well. Simply blanch spinach and create a puree from it and mix it with the dough.
- Skip the green chili if you are serving for kids.
- Palak paratha taste great when roasted with ghee instead of oil.
- You can even add coriander leaves for more flavors.
- You can give diversity to this paratha to a palak paneer paratha. You just need to stuff the paneer (cottage cheese) stuffing into palak paratha.
