Mutter Palak paratha


Mutter Palak paratha

I love eating parathas at a restaurant or when my mother makes me one, however just the thought of making it on my own daunts me. Post marriage, I always kept the idea of making parathas at a two arm distance even though my hubby is a foodie and would eat anything I cook. I deprived him of  these yummy little thing called parathas. Well, before the bollywood in me overcomes my personality and I get more melodramatic, let me stop here ;)
Coming back to parathas, well I just felt that I needed a paratha recipe on my blog and I might as well make my husband happier by making it for him. So as always in my obsessive need to keep most of our weekday meals healthy, I decided to make these parathas diet friendly. Now I must say that I am totally hooked on to making parathas and I plan to try out different varieties soon. Anyways, here is my recipe of Mutter palak paratha. Happy cooking!



You need:
2 cups of blanched spinach
1 cup oats flour
2 cups wheat flour
1 cup boiled green peas, coarsely grounded
4 green chillies
Half cup chopped cilantro
3 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
seasonings like garam masala, dhania jeera powder and salt
Milk and ghee as needed

Procedure:
In a mixing bowl, take wheat flour and oats flour. Make a well in between and add spinach, green peas, green chillies, cilantro, spices like garam masala, salt and dhania jeera powder, sesame seeds and knead into a soft dough adding milk as required. Refrigerate the dough for 15-30 minutes.
Roll out medium sized parathas and cook on a tava. Apply ghee on both sides before serving.
