How to make Palak Paneer Paratha:

  • Divide the dough into large lemon sized balls.
  • Dust and roll the dough to make a small disc shape.
  • Keep 2-3 tbsp of stuffing in the centre of the disc and then bring the ends together and close the openings.
  • Dust and roll gently to make a paratha.
  • Heat a griddle and apply some oil.
  • Transfer the paratha on the hot griddle.
  • Furthermore, when the base is partly cooked, flip the paratha and cook until brown spots appear on both the sides.
  • Apply oil, press gently and cook properly.
  • Serve hot with butter and pickle or curd.

Small Tips:

  • Instead of making a spinach puree to add in the flour, you can also finely chop the spinach and add it in the flour and then knead it.
  • Also instead of blanching palak, you can also simply make palak puree by adding washed palak in blender along with green chillies and ginger.
  • If you are serving kids then skip the green chilli.
