Palak Rotti

This is a quick easy way to prepare spinach rotti. Very healthy and tastes awesome. It remains soft for the whole day. Makes a great main dish,breakfast or simple brunch too. Requires minimal ingredients and very simple to prepare .You will never go wrong.

Spinach - 1 bunch
Rice flour - 2- 3 cups
Salt - 2 tsp or as per taste
Green chillies - 2-3 finely chopped
Water - 6-7 cups of hot water
Oil - for smearing
cumin - 2 tsp

1.Take a heavy bottomed pan add 1 tsp of oil and add cumin seeds when it starts to splutter add rice flour ,salt and water and keep mixing.
2.Clean and chop spinach finely and cook in microwave for 3-4 mins and keep aside.
3.Keep stirring the rice flour mixture as it gets lumpy very quickly.Just when it starts getting thicker add spinach to it and continue to stir until the entire mixture comes together as a single mass.
4.Now remove from the heat and keep it aside for cooling.
5.Grease 2 square plastic cover and keep ready.
6.Prepare small balls out of the mixture or the dough and press them just as you prepare the ubbu rotti.[Refer there]
7.Heat up the pan and cook this rotti after removing from the plastic paper till they get roasted brown on both sides.
8.Grease them with oil or ghee as desired.
9.Enjoy with hot chutney or spicy long bean curry as sides.
