Potato-Spinach-Cottage Cheese Parathas

These parathas are adapted from Saffron Hut. While we all love the stuffed paratha, my daughter is not particularly fond of potato stuffed parathas, or potato anything for that matter, which is totally surprising and beyond me. Anyway, in order to get her to eat these, I adapted the recipe by including the potato in the spinach-cheese dough.

Here's how I make these parathas:

1 cup whole wheat flour (I use Pilsbury brand)
1 cup spinach leaves - roughly chopped
1/2 cup frozen shredded hash browns - thawed for 2 mins in the microwave
1/2 cup cottage cheese
Seasonings to taste - salt, sugar, cumin pwd, coriander pwd, red chilli pwd, chat masala.

Run the spinach leaves and cottage cheese thru a blender for a few minutes to get a smooth paste. Then mix it with all the other ingredients to form a dough. Add a little water only if needed. Let this dough rest for atleast 1/2 hr. Then roll into parathas. Roast on an iron griddle with a few drops of oil, until brown spots develop on both sides.

Serve with yogurt/ketchup/pickles.

These Potato-Spinach-Cottage Cheese Parathas go to the Dish it Out event at Mharo Rajasthan Recipes. This event was started by Vardhini.
