Spniach / Palak / Palakura Puri

Off late I have been publishing posts on travel alone and I donot want my visitors to mistake my blog for a travellers' blog alone. So today I'm gonna post a recipe which I tried last night and it turned out very good so much so that my husband thought of gifting me a new kitchen for all my experiments.

So here comes the recipe................

Ingredients :
  • Spniach / Palak / Palakura : one bunch
  • Garlic : 4 pieces
  • Green chillies : 2 long ones
  • Salt : for taste
  • Wheat Flour / Atta : 2 cups
  • Oil : for deep frying the puris

Procedure :

  • Grind the spinach, garlic pieces, green chillies by adding salt as per your taste and keep aside.
  • Mix atta with about teaspoon of oil first and then add the ground paste and mix it well into a batter as would for puris. Donot add salt to this again as you have already added salt to the ground paste.
  • Now make samll balls from the batter and make small flat circular sheets. Donot worry about the shapes. What matters is the thickness. It has to be of medium thickness and not that thin as for rotis and not as thick as for paranthas.
  • Now heat oil in a wok or a pan for deep frying the puris.

Enjoy your Palak puris and tell me how you liked them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy cooking !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I came over from your comment on Jo's blog - A majority of two, which I follow most regularly.
    Your bog is interesting, and my interests in life are pretty similar to your.
    My cooking is pretty good too. Though I have never written about recipes.
