Flax Seeds & Mixed Greens Paratha

I dont bother to make parathas even everyday but i know my DH wont be happy if i make them often, eventhough i never fail to make parathas thrice or twice in a week for our dinner, i can say that its quite an obligation for my better half, the fun part is my teddies and myself can have any sort of parathas anytime even without side dishes...Coming to this paratha, while going through my fridge i was surprised to see some mint leaves were sitting since two days, i planned immediately to turn them as parathas along with some frozen drumstick leaves, frozen spinach leaves and with whole flax seeds, this paratha turned out super delicious dish...Sending to Pj's Herbs & Flowers In My Platter & Charitha's B for Breakfast..

Flax seeds & Mixed Greens Paratha

3cups Wheat flour
1/2cup Yogurt
1/4cup Drumstick leaves(thawed)
1/4cup Spinach leaves (thawed)
1tbsp Mint leaves (chopped)
1tbsp Flax seeds
Salt
Oil for cooking

Take the wheat flour,mixed green leaves, flax seeds, salt in a bowl, add gradually enough warm water and yogurt and knead until a smooth and stiff dough forms. Make small balls from the dough,dust them with flour and roll as medium size disc..Heat a griddle,gently drop the rolled parathas,drizzle few drops of oil and cook on both side until they gets well cooked..

Enjoy with any side dish.
