Palak Puri

Palak Puri is always a hit with the kids. Made these for lunch when my daughter had some friends over for a play date.

Here's how I make Palak Puris:

1 6oz bag of baby spinach (or equivalent qty of regular spinach)
upto 2 cups of whole wheat flour (I use Annapurna brand)
big pinch of ova/ajwain seeds
big pinch of sugar
1 tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp cumin seed pwd
1/2 tsp red chilli pwd or to taste

Empty the spinach into a large microwave safe bowl and nuke for 2 mins. Let cool, then puree using 2 to 3 tbsp of water. Add the seasonings. 

Add the wheat flour 1/2 cup at a time. Knead to form a dough, consistency should be harder than regular roti dough.

Add few drops of oil, knead till smooth. Cover with a damp cloth and rest for 1/2 hour. Then roll into small puris and deep dry.

This will make about 20 puris. I serve these with boondi raita, this makes a good combo. Since the puris are spiced, there is no need for any subji.

These puris also make good travel or picnic food.
