Green Paratha

                    Green Paratha (Indian bread) gets it name from the deep green color and all the green ingredients it has. This paratha is very different from the other stuffed parathas. It is a great way to eat all the green leafy vegetables for everyone to enjoy, even those who don't like the greens. The mint gives it a refreshing flavor that you cannot miss.

  • 3 cups Wheat flour
  • 2 cups Spinach leaves
  • 1 cup Fenugreek leaves
  • 1 cup Cilantro 
  • 0.5 cup Mint leaves
  • 4 Garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp Chili-Ginger Paste
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Cumin Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil
  • Wash all the green leaves properly.
  • In a blender, mix all the green leaves and garlic and grind it to a smooth paste. If needed, add very little water. I prefer to do it without water
  • Sieve the flour
  • Add 2 tsp Oil, salt, chili-ginger paste, cumin powder, black pepper to the flour and mix it well

  • Now, add the puree slowly and knead it into a semi-soft dough
  • Add more flour, if the dough is too soft
  • Knead the dough properly.

  • Divide into smaller portions
  • Roll out each portion of the dough into a small round with the help of flour.
  • Place the Paratha on a hot tava (or skillet), cook for a minute or two and turn once.
  • After 1 minute, spread little oil on the Paratha , turn again and repeat on the other side.
  • When brown patches appear on both sides, the Paratha is ready.

  • Serve hot with any Cilantro Chutney or Tomato Ketchup or any dipping sauce of your choice.
