Green Flat Indian Bread


Ingredients for making Green Flat Indian Bread:
  • 2 cup spinach (Frozen/ Fresh)
  • 2 cup Chapathi Flour/ Wheat Flour
  • litter water to knead the flour
  • salt to taste
  • red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
  • cooking oil - 2 Tablespoon

Method for making Green Flat Indian Bread:

Step 1: Wash the spinach and cook it (i microwaved it for 7 minutes) and then let it cool.

Step 2: Once the cooked spinach is cooled put it in a blender and blend it to a smooth paste.

Step 3: In a mixing bowl add the chapatti / wheat flour , little salt, red chili powder, the grounded spinach and mix well and knead it to a dough add a spoon of oil and knead it again..Cover the bowl and keep the dough aside for at least 10 minutes.(the dough will be of nice green in color)

Step 4: Then make small rounds of the dough and flatten it like chapathi using little chapathi flour then and there.. and cook on the skillet both sides until done...

Step 5: Remove from the skillet and add little ghee or oil on top of it...Continue the same procedure until all the kneaded dough gets over...

Step 6: ready to serve...

Can serve this Green Indian Flat bread with little butter on top of it... with any side dish or just with plain yogurt and little pickle.

I served my spinach chapathi or Green Flat Bread warm with yogurt and pickle...

The taste was awesome....(try to serve the chapathi's when they are nice warm...)
