Palak paratha

My sincere thanks to our "maharaj" (cook) for preparing this delicious paratha.


2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup palak leaves washed and finely chopped
5 tbsps oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp black sesame seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
Salt to taste

Add the flour, chopped palak, 1 tbsp of cooking oil, cumin seeds, sesame seeds, turmeric and red chilli powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.
Add water, a little at a time to this mixture, and knead to form a medium-soft, smooth dough. Keep aside for 30 minutes.
Divide the dough into small balls-sized portions and roll between your hands till they are smooth and without cracks.
Very lightly flour a rolling board and roll each ball into a circle
Heat a griddle and fry the parathas ,drizzle a bit of oil on the top and spread well over the surface of the paratha. Flip again in 30 seconds and drizzle oil on this surface too. The paratha is done when both sides are crispy and golden brown.
This paratha goes well with rajma.
