Palak Tofu Paratha

Palak and tofu,both are my favourite and i love anything with these two. But since few months, my lil one started saying 'no' to tofu and he is completely refusing to take tofu.During my recent visit to nearby chinese store, i didnt hesitate a second to grab a packet of firm tofu and back home, i really want to add this wonderful soya cheese in our food. Everyone at home love parathas, so obviously i'll try to make parathas quite often with anything, if you go through my recipe index , you can definitely see how we love parathas, obviously i have a huge collection of different parathas.

Finally i prepared this green parathas with spinach and tofu puree, i simply cooked some spinach leaves and  finally i grinded both the cooked spinach and extra firm tofu together to make a thick puree. I used this puree for kneading my dough, so that none will notice the addition of tofu. The addition of tofu turned out this paratha simply super soft and these parathas while cooking puffed very much like our rotis.My kids simply loved this attractive green parathas and needless to say my lil one enjoyed very much.Now i know how to feed my small picky eater with tofu.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet-Go green guest hosted by Amurta.


2cups Wheat flour
1/2cup Spinach
1/2cup Extra firm tofu
1tsp Ajwain seeds
Salt
Oil for cooking

Bring boil a cup of water, add the cleaned and chopped spinach, cook for few minutes until they shrinks.

Drain the excess of water and take the cooked spinach,tofu together in a mixer, grind as smooth paste without adding water.

Now add this puree, ajwain seeds,salt to the wheat flour, knead everything as a soft dough.(add water incase if you need else this puree will work wonder to knead the dough)

Keep aside for half an hour, make 7-8medium sized balls from the dough, dust it with enough flour and roll them as round circles.

Heat a tawa, add the rolled parathas to the hot tawa, drizzles oil and cook in medium flame until both sides gets well cooked.

Enjoy this healthy parathas with your favourite side dish.
