Jatpatt Spinach rotti
Here is a simplest recipe of yummy palak rotti .As usual i was chatting with my mom and she said that she had prepared this rotti and the way she described it i felt like eating it very badly.She had prepared it out of 'basale' that is the chineese spinach.But as we get it very rarely over here in California i thought of trying it out with the spinach and believe me it came out so good and tasted,simply very good .It is crunchy as well as silky smootn because of the spinach.Its very heathy as there is the spinach which is rich in iron , vitamin-B & Vit-A.The base is wheat flour which is rich in fibres , protien & vit-B .Well all may feel that its like parata ,but no friends its not like that and taste is so promising indeed.Do give a look at the pictures and then try.See it for yourself.
Wheat flour- 2 cups
Spinach - 1 bunch
Chilly powder- 2 tsp
Salt- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1 pinch
1.Take the flour and salt in a big vessel and mix.Then add thinly chopped spinach to it.
2.season with chilly powder,salt ,turmeric and jeera .
3.Add enough water to make a wet dough just enough to roll out the balls roughly.It will be very stick .,
4.Heat the pan ,then make a big ball out of this wet dough and flaten it a bit and place it in the centre of the pan and press and make a small round shaped rotti out of it.Dip your hand in cold water after each rotti so that your hand wont get burnt.
5.Cover and cook for 1 min .Then smear the upper surface with coconut oil then flip up the opposite side and then smear this side and roast till it turns crisp.This can be eaten as it is or with spicy pickle added at the side.Enjoy...
