Palak Paratha Recipe ( Indian Unleavened Flatbread with spinach) (Winter special recipe)

 Winter special recipe--Palak Paratha Recipe (Indian  Unleavened Flatbread with spinach)

I am back again with a very nutritious recipe with the very versatile spinach or palak.I always look for new ways of serving nutritious food to my fussy eaters at home.Fortunately my family is very fond of parathas,they can be served at breakfast or dinner ,and are always welcome.This recipe actually forms a wholesome meal as we all know that the spinach is rich in vitamins and iron..i prefer serving any paratha with some chutney and avoid pickle to some extent,At my home parathas go very well with some boondi raitha.Soi as long as winters are here ,palak parathas and methi parathas will continue to be served at my place.

The dough of this paratha can be made the earlier evening and kept ready in the refrigerator .It can be rolled and roasted in the morning for lunch boxes.
