Palak Paneer Paratha

This paratha was invented because of my husband's habit of eating. He doesn't like to eat roti, dal, subji daily. So one day I was planning to make palak paneer for lunch. But suddenly he declared, I want some parathas today. Then I mix up Roti and palak paneer and made this Palak Paneer Paratha (3P's) with pineapple Raita.


For Cover
Atta (wheat flour)- 2 cups
Palak/ spinach - 1 bunch
Green chilly - 2-3
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste

For Stuffing
Grated Paneer - 1 cup
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Ajwain - 1/2 teaspoon
Garam Masala powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste.

Butter for parathas


Clean and wash spinach leaves. Blanch it in a boiling water. Strain the water and immediately keep it under cool water so the green color will remain intact.
Make a paste of spinach and green chilies in mixer. In a large bowl take this green puree and all other remaining ingredients of cover. Knead into a soft dough with little oil. Keep aside for half an hour.
Mix together all the ingredients to be used for stuffing in a bowl.
Make small lemon size balls of the dough. Roll out the dough like a puri. Stuff it with 2 table spoon of stuffing (you can fill the stuffing as per your choice). Close the ends of the puri at the center and make a ball.Seal it nicely so that stuffing doesn’t come out while rolling. Now roll this stuffed ball into flat paratha. Heat griddle, fry paratha using a little butter, until both sides are golden brown. Serve with Raita, chutney or pickle.
You can roll it in aluminum foil and carry as a lunch.
