As I said, boiled, grated potato is added in the dough here. I am big lover of adding mashed potatoes in the dough itself. Just because, it makes the process easy instead of making stuffing separately.

The other reason is – it makes the paratha soft (not chewy at all after it gets cool). You may have noticed few recipes – methi paratha, spring onion paratha.

The spinach puree is also added while kneading the dough which makes the paratha look green in color. Green chili and garlic is added along with spinach to make puree. Here I have added only one small green chili which makes mild paratha. To make it spicy, you can increase the quantity or add red chili powder in the dough.

When it comes to the green leafy vegetable in our diet, spinach leaves and fenugreek leaves are the two most used in my kitchen. Hence you will find many recipes using spinach leaves and methi leaves here in the blog.

I usually make this aloo palak paratha for hubby’s lunch box. I pack onion-tomato raita or cucumber raita in separate container. This makes light yet filling meal.
