Recipe for the Khasta Palak Paratha
Festival Time is on & so was posting only Festival food for all of you.
But every day Comfort Food is always loved & something all of us need as that is so vital for the well being of our family.
PALAK or SPINACH
A very Beneficial Green Leafy Vegetable that is full of iron, vitamin C & a whole lot of other advantages, is sadly not liked by a lot of people especially children who are not too fond of spinach.
So how do we add spinach to our daily home cooking?
Simple, add it into certain dishes that do justice to our Humble Palak & also to all who don’t like the spinach.
So I am going to share my KHASTA PALAK PARATHA Recipe with you & I bet not only the kids but everyone will love it. These parathas are so soft yet crunchy that its a pleasure to eat them with a Sabji or simply a pickle of your choice. I love it with my homemade Butter or curd which is next to Heaven for me.
Spinach, as I said earlier, has a lot of health benefits & is said to be full of energy. In fact, the Famous Sailor Man Popeye’s strength is supposed to come from a tin of Spinach, once he would consume the spinach, he would be able to fight his enemies 😃😃 A Great story to share with the kids maybe to make them eat Spinach.
Now the Recipe of KHASTA PALAK PARATHA
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup spinach purée ( take fresh spinach leaves, place in boiling water for about 3 minutes, remove, put in ice cold water & strain, then blend into a purée )
- 5 tablespoons ghee / Clarified butter
- 2 teaspoon ginger chilli paste
- 1 teaspoon shahi jeera or cumin seeds
- Salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl & form a firm dough ( add a little water )
Put a non-stick tawa to heat on a medium flame
Now make balls out of the dough ( big enough to make thick parathas )
Roll out these balls into a disc or a circle
Then fold it into the half, sticking it on the sides with a little ghee & flour as shown in the video above
Now fold it again so that it becomes a triangle & stick the sides again
Roll out this triangle from all sides into a thick paratha
Heat the triangle paratha very well on both sides till brown spots appear
Apply ghee on both sides & cook until it is done well, should be a little crunchy but not overcooked
The Delicious KHASTA PALAK PARATHAs are ready to be served.
