    Spinach Puri

    Ingredients
    1 cup whole wheat flour
    1/4 cup besan
    2 cup spinach leaves(boil and then dry it properly)
    1 green chilli
    1/2 inch ginger
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp cumin seeds
    1/8 tsp asafetida
    1 Tbsp oil

    Method

    1. Blend the spinach, ginger and green chilli with about 1/4 cup of water, use more if needed.
    2. In a bowl mix besan with whole wheat flour. Then add spinach paste, cumin seeds, asafetida, salt, and oil,
    mix it well.
    3. Make a firm and pliable dough. Add water as needed. Grease your palm and knead the dough. Cover the
    dough and let it sit for 10 minutes or more.

    Turn the puris over. Puries should be light golden color both sides.
    7. Take the puris out and place them on paper towels to absorb the excess oil. Repeat the process for

    I keep experimenting with different types of healthy ingredients for my kids tiffin. I try to normally incorporate ingredients easily available in my kitchen at any time of the day or night.
    Using these, i make parathas, idli or utappa etc.

    For parathas and puris....i combine all possible flours available at home ( besan, rava, wheat flour, makka atta, bajra atta ) and mix whatever vegetables there at home ( onion, tomato, capsicum, potato, lauki carrots).

    I add ginger garlic paste, sesame seeds, cumin seeds, green chilies, pudina, ajwain seeds etc to almost all recipes for flavour and taste

    Today i tried making healthy puri with all such ingredients available at home -

    HEALTHY ALOO AND SOYABEAN PURI

    wheat flour - 1 cup
    Besan - 1 tablespoon
    Rava - 2 tablepoon
    Nutri nuggets powder or any kind of soyabean powder - 2 tablespoon
    Boiled and mashed potatoes 2-3 mediun sized
    Grated ginger - 1 teaspoon
    Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
    Salt - as per taste
    Green chilli - 1 very finely chopped
    Black Sesame seeds - 3/4th teaspoon
    Ajwain seeds - 3 /4th teaspoon
    Amchoor powder or chat masala - 3/4th teaspoon
    Coriander and curry leaves - optional to suit taste
    Method

    Mix all flours and dry masalas. Add chopped green chillies and ginger paste. Mix well
    Then add the boiled and mashed potatoes

    Knead a tight dough without using water. If the need of water is felt..you can use little water or curd.

    Cover the dough and leave it for half an hour.

    Roll flat small puris using little oil sonit does not stick to the rolling pin. Deep fry in hot oil

    This recioe i have kept it as simple as possible and used only the ingredients easily available in all homes.

    You can add boiled palak puree or tomato puree or grated carrots also to the dough. You can even experiement adding finely chopped onions and capsicum to the dough.
    Or even flours other than those i have given. Eg ragi flour or bajra flour etc

    Health conscious people who dont eat lot of oil, can make parathas with the same dough.
