Spinach Puri (Palak ki Puri)

Spinach is one of the most nutritious and healthy greens among all vegetables. Though low in calories, it contains higher concentrations of minerals, vitamins and other phytonutrients. Spinach also has a high calcium content.Spinach is always recommended by the nutritionists. I generally don't promote deep fried food at home. Being a Sunday the demands coming in from my husband dear I chose to cook the hot sizzling pooris.  Also, the fresh green leafy veggie was just brought in so it got me thinking & finally the recipe is here....

Ingredients :

Spinach : 400 gms
Maida : 500 gms
Green Chilli : 4-5, (your tolerance)
Ginger-garlic paste : 2 tbsp.
Salt - as per taste
Oil for deep frying

Method :

Wash the spinach leaves and put them in a grinder with the green chillies. Grind to make a paste.

Sift flour and salt in a large bowl add the spinach paste, knead it a little hard. If too soft the pooris will absorb more oil. Keep the dough covered for about 10 minutes with a muslin cloth.

Make small balls with the dough and make puris.

In a kadai, take oil and heat it. Now immerse it in the hot oil, fry one puri by another and prepare palak puri.

Serve hot with Aloo Dum, Egg kalia and Gulab jamun.
