Spinach Cheese Paratha

Yesterday we finished the course and cleared all the exams Yipee!!!!


I and Jo finally got time to catch up on the chat we have been planning for some time now. We went to Chat paradise on the Elcamino and enjoyed chat basket, papri chat and hara bhara paratha. I enjoyed every bit of it in a nice rainy afternoon whith a lovely friend.


That inspired me to prepare something with spinach. I didn't want to go with plain palak paratha. So I tried little different spices and cheese.


Ingredients:

  1. Wheat Flour: 1 1/2 cup
  2. Spinach: 1/2 cup finely chopped
  3. Feta Cheese: 1/2 cup
  4. Mint Leaves: 8-10
  5. Coriander leaves: handful
  6. Green chill: 2
  7. Onion: 1 cup finely chopped
  8. Garlic: 2 cloves
  9. Lime Juice: 2 tsp
  10. Cumin Powder: 1tsp
  11. Chat Powder: 1 tsp
  12. Chilli Powder: 1tsp
  13. Curd: 1/4 cup
  14. Salt: as per taste.
  15. Oil : for cooking paratha



Procedure:
Blend together mint leaves, coriander leaves, green chilli, garlic cloves and lime into a fine paste.
In a bowl mix the all the in ingredients except the curd and knead into a dry dough so that all the flavors blend in.
Add the curd and knead the flour mix into a soft dough. Don't add all the curd at a time, go a little at a time.
Cover the dough with a wet kitchen towel and leave it for 30 mins.
Heat the tawa.
Using a rolling board and pin make round parathas. The mixture would make 8 parathas.
Put the paratha on the hot tawa and cook till it is cooked form both sides. Drizzle few drops of oil on both side and cook till it turn brown all around.
Your yummy spinach cheese parathas are ready.
Serve them hot with mint chutney or ketchup.



I hope you enjoy this healthy and yummy dish.


Till then happy blogging.
