Spinach & Flax Seeds Paratha

Usually i used to grind spinach with spice powders to make out parathas with spiced spinach puree..This time i dont want to prepare parathas with spinach puree so my choice went to finely chopped and coarsely grounded spinach along with yogurt and prepared this parathas with  wheat flour along with cumin seeds, whole flax seeds and garam masala...This spinach parathas tastes fantastic for a simple dinner with some easy breezy chutneys or with simple gravies...Simple, greeny but healthy spinach parathas prepared along with whole flax seeds to give more healthiness to this simple spinach paratha which i served along with egg kurma and we loved it...


3cups Wheat flour
1cup Spinach (chopped finely)
2tbsp Flax seeds
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1tsp Garam masala powder
1cup Yogurt
Salt
All purpose flour for dusting

Grind the chopped spinach coarsely along with yogurt ..In a large bowl, take the wheat flour,garam masala powder,cumin seeds,salt and whole flax seeds and knead as smooth dough along with spinach-yogurt mixture..keep aside for half an hour..Make 10-12medium sized balls from the dough, dust with all purpose flour and roll as circular or square shaped parathas with rolling pin...

Heat a pan and drop gently the parathas to the hot pan,drizzle the oil to the paratha... cook on both sides until they get well cooked..Serve along with any gravies..

  6. For some reasons, I thought paratha are baked. Good to know they're pan fried. This is such a healthy dish. I recently learn about the great benefits of flax seeds so this recipe will definitely come in handy.

  23. Hi Priya,

    Flax seed addition in paratha is good, do you use the seeds or powder them to add. I was told that flax seeds need to be powdered. I am trying to read up on that.
