Yet another yummy flavored roti recipe, my kids loved for their school lunch. Easy to make and nutritious as well. Spinach is not a favorite for my kids, but would like to introduce this in their diet once every week. In this recipe flavor of the spinach is hidden by the spices and the kids will not have a clue about spinach being added to the dough.
fresh spinach 2 cups
oil 4 tsp + more for cooking roti
ginger paste 1 tbsp
jeera powder 1 1/2 tsp
red chilly powder 3/4 tsp
salt to taste
amchur/ mango powder 3/4 tsp
wheat flour 2 cups
water to make dough
Heat 4 tsp oil in pan add the washed spinach, ginger paste and let cook till leaves wilted.
Mix in the amchur, red chilly powder, salt, and jeera powder.
Cook for 2 mins and let cool.
Blend this mixture into a coarse mixture with out adding any water. Just pulse it 3 times in the mixer.
Take the wheat flour in a big bowl and add the above coarse mixture, using lil by lil water. Make a firm soft dough.
Divide the dough evenly into balls of 2 inches diameter, roll them and set aside.
Dust some wheat flour on a clean surface, take each ball and roll it into a thin round roti using a rolling pin. Dust more atta if needed while rolling.
Heat a tava/griddle and cook the rolled roti on both sides by applying little oil so that it doesn’t look dry.
Serve hot and super soft rotis with achar (mango pickle)/thick yogurt.
Note: Can be served with out any side dish also. Tastes good. I roll these rotis in aluminum foil and pack it for kids lunch..
