Spinach Roti



It's been quite a long time since I made rotis. I have been experimenting on different kinds of instant dosas all these days. Now it's time for different kinds of rotis and gravies:)

Spinach is loaded with Vitamin K. 1 cup of boiled spinach has over 1000%(daily value) of Vitamin K. It helps maintain bone health and also prevents activation of cells that break down the bones. There are so many other uses of spinach. For more info check out here. So it is important to include spinach in our diet.

Makes about 10-11 rotis

Ingredients:
Dry ingredients:
Whole wheat flour-2 cups
Salt
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Chilli powder as required
Garam masala powder-1/2 tsp
Hing-a pinch
Coriander powder-1 tsp

To fry in 1 tsp oil:
Spinach chopped-1 bunch
Jeera-1 tsp

Method:
Mix the dry ingredients and set aside.
Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan. Add jeera. When it crackles, add chopped spinach. Fry well till spinach shrinks and loses its raw smell(about 5 minutes).
Add it to the dry ingredients and mix well. Spinach releases its water when it is mixed with the flour. So add water accordingly and make a soft dough. Add a tsp of oil to the dough and knead well.
Set aside for 10 minutes.
Prepare rotis the usual way.
