Spicy Greens Roti

 Roti made by combing the healthy greens like spinach , Fenugreek ,Dill , coriander , mint . It was healthy as I included so many greens in a single roti. Any green of your choice can be added.

 Dill leaves – Leaves of the Aniseed plant . I haven’t seen any shop selling these in and around my place. I had sowed few aniseeds in a pot to grow this plant 10 days before. There are 4 plants which had grown upto 10 cm height. I used these leaves to this roti. This gives a special flavor to the roti.

Requirement :
Wheat flour – 2 cup
Greens ( spinach , Fenugreek , Dill , mint , coriander ) – 1 cup
Green chilli – 2
Chilli powder – ¼ tsp
Coriander powder – ¼ tsp
Amchur powder – ½ tsp
Cumin powder – ¼ tsp
Ghee – 2 tsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Grated Ginger – ¼ tsp
Water as required
Salt to taste

Method :
In a bowl , add the flour and chopped greens , mix well.
Add in the dry masala , salt , chopped green chilli and ginger .
Add the ghee and mix well.
Sprinkle little water at a time and knead the dough.
Make a soft smooth dough. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes to get soft roti.

Make small round balls of the dough.
Press into thin rotis by dusting flour with the help of rolling pin.
Heat a tava and cook the pressed rotis with spreading little oil on top.
Cook on both sides.

Spicy greens paratha is ready to serve.
Serve with coconut chutney , any raita or plain curd.

We had it with plain curd.
