Palak Roti With Methi Aloo

Easy to make, I feel its more healthy in-take, especially for kids since it has more protein and its easy to digest. Palak as all of you know is good for health. I have made this along with Methi aloo .Preperation time is about 1hour for both. You can serve with yogurt, pickle. We all know of the many types of parathas. Paratha is usually stuffed one. But this is just like chapati / roti . You can roll it any shape. At home I make this all the time.



Ingredients for Paratha
  • Palak Puree - 1 cup
  • Wheat flour - 4 cups
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Garam Masala - 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Ajwain / Carom seeds - 1 tsp
Method
  • Chop palak and put it in a mixer and make puree. (Make sure there is not too much water)
  • Take a large bowl. Add palak puree, and all the above ingredients
  • Mix well, knead soft dough. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into equal portions and roll in dry flour. Roll out a portion into roti.
  • Spread a little oil and sprinkle a little flour.
  • Give a slit on side upto the centre of the roti and start rolling from one side of the slit to reach the other side. Stand it upright and press lightly. Similarly use up the remaining dough. Dip the roll in flour for easy rolling. (Take a look into Fusion from Renuka's Blog)
  • Take a Tawa and preheat first on lowflame on a hob
  • Place the paratha and flip over spread oil / ghee on the other side cook for both the sides
  • Make the remaining paratha / roti and serve hot with curry's.
Methi Aloo Ingredients
  • Aloo / Potato - 2 cups, chopped, cubed (parboiled)
  • Methi / Fenugreek leaves - 2 cups, chopped
  • Kasoori methi - 1 tsp
  • Green chillies - 2 or 3, slit
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil - 2 tbspn
  • Jeera / Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric a pinch
  • Asafoetida / hing a pinch
  • Garam masala - 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Lemon juice (optional)
Method
  • Chop methi / fenugreek leaves , wash and add 1/4 cup water & salt cook on a medium flame till done and till water is fully absorbed
  • Heat oil in a pan, add jeera & green chillies till done.
