For Palak :
- Blanch the palak in some water for 5 mins & make a puree. Recerve the water for later use while making the paratha dough. OR
- In this recipe i have just roughly minced the palak in a blender without blanching as this increases the nutritive value of the paratha.
1. In a parat add the wheat flour & all the spices, lemon juice. little oil & salt & mix well.
2. Now add the palak & knead into a soft dough. Let it rest for some time.
3. Make equal size balls.
