Spinach Roti

Ingredients to make Spinach Roti

  • 1 ½ cups chopped frozen spinach, lightly thawed
  • 4-5 sprigs cilantro, chopped
  • 1 serrano pepper ( Indian green chili), chopped
  • salt
  • water, if needed
  • 1 ½ cups finely ground wholewheat flour(Indian atta flour), plus more to knead
  • 3 tbsp olive oil or any cooking oil
  • salt
  • water(upto 1- 1/2 cups)

How to make Spinach Roti

  1. In a blender or mixer, process spinach, cilantro, pepper, salt to a smooth puree. Add in only enough water for it to reach a thickish liquid consistency.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer using knead attachment or bowl of food processor, add green puree and upto 1 cup wheat flour, oil salt.
  3. Knead in machine till smooth dough turns out, sifting in additional flour, upto 2 cups, pouring in sufficient water for mixture to be elastic and pliable.
  4. Take dough out on work surface and knead gently a few more times. At this stage it should be smooth and shiny. Cover with a damp clean kitchen towel 10-15 minutes.
  5. Divide dough into 1- 2" balls. Roll out one and leave the rest covered.
  6. Have a flat top pan or griddle heated to medium on stove. Place rolled out round onto skillet.
  7. Heat on both sides, brushing with additional oil if needed(or butter:-) till cooked / burnished with brown spots on both sides.
  8. Repeat with remaining balls.
  9. These rotis/ chapatis make for an awesome meal with a magnificent accompaniment, such as this or this, this or this.. However, seved with nothing but a few smears of butter alone is also ridiculously epic.

My Tip:

Alternatively, if you need that arm muscle workout, something I definitely qualify for, yet have no desire to fulfill, by all means use your hands to knead, pull and roll.
