Palak Paratha Recipe |Spinach Paratha

spinach paratha

Parathas are always an yummy way to fill your tummy . Instead od stuffed parathas now a days we love to have plain flavored paratha's . Whole wheat flour is a very healthy way to start a day and so  paratha's are served for breakfast too. I made spinach paratha a lot as my H insist to have spinach once a week atleast and I end making this green paratha always . This is one very healthy paratha which kids will surely enjoy seeing the attractive color . Parathas are one way to make you diet a filling and had Builds less calories  than from rice.So we make sure that we have roti and rice in a balanced manner .

Paratha is an Indian variety flat bread which is generally stuffed or any flavoring is added to the flour while kneading. There are N number of variations and varieties parathas we can be made . They can be enjoyed with some spicy curry and also go well with raita . Today my paratha is flavored with palak and can be served with curry or raita . My H loves this paratha with Boondi raita . Perfect paratha for kids and elders who our concerned with their healthy diet. Here is have used ghee for serving but you can skip it , these are super soft paratha so they can be enjoyed without ghee even !!
