Spinach Parathas

Kids like the plain parathas as much as the stuffed parathas like aloo, cauliflower etc.  Instead of keeping it plain, I like to incorporate some vegetable as much as I can.  It is also the best way of using the leftover veggies in the refrigerator.  Here is what I did



2 cups wheat flour
2 tightly packed cups of baby spinach washed
pinch of turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp chilli powder
salt to taste
2 tsp oil or more if you prefer while kneading the dough

Take everything in the food processor and run till the spinach is coarsely chopped.  Transfer this to a bowl and knead into a soft dough adding little water at a time.  Grease your hands in the end and knead the dough further for about 5 minutes.  Set aside the dough for an hour.

Roll it out evenly and cook on a hot tawa.  Cook both sides without oil and cook further applying oil on both sides till brown spots appear.  Serve with raita or any side dish of your choice.
