Palak Parata

Published May 23, 2014 by Bingo's Mom


Wheat Flour – 1 1/2 cups

Palak – 1 medium-sized bunch

Onion – 1 (medium)

Curd – 4 tbsp

Sambar Powder – 1 tsp

Garam Masala – 1/2 tsp

Chilly Powder – 1/4 tsp

Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tsp

Ajwain / Omam – 2 pinches

Salt – to taste

Oil – 1/2 tbs

Jeera – 1/2 tsp

Oil – as required


Clean, wash and chop palak. Heat a pan. Add 1/2 tsp of oil. Add Jeera; let it pop and add palak; sauté them on medium flame until it becomes soft. Turn off and let it comes to room temperature.

In a wide bowl add wheat flour, palak, onion, Sambar Powder, chilly powder, garam masala, turmeric powder, ajwain (omam) and salt. Mix well without adding water.

Now add curd and mix well to a crumbly mixture. It will look as shown in the below picture.


Add water little by little and make a smooth dough. When the dough is 80% done, add 2 tsp of oil in your hand and continue to make soft dough. Keep it covered for 10 – 15 minutes.

Heat a tawa. Pinch out a lemon sized dough and roll out as we do for chapatis. Place it on the tawa and drizzle some oil. cook on both sides. continue to do for the remaining dough.

Serve hot with curry of your choice. I served it with curd, pickle and tomato sauce.


P.S. The picture had my original name in watermark so, I have deleted them. That’s the reason for white patches.
