These days, we are trying to follow healthy food habits as a part of which hubby wants me to use leafy vegetables in cooking at-least 3 - 4 days a week. Normally, he will bring fresh leafy veggies from a vegetable shop nearby. Other vegetables will not be so good, but varieties of leafy vegetables are available very fresh there. If we go in the evening time, shop keeper will be busy arranging the fresh leafy vegetables on the racks. Hubby prefers using spinach in our food regularly since its very rich in iron. 
These days, I really got bored with spinach palya and currys due to regular usage. So, thought of trying some new recipes using spinach. This recipe is from an old Kannada magazine which I noted down long back. Already I have tried this Roti quite a few times at home and it was a success! So, here is the recipe for you :)
Other than spinach, fenugreek as well as dill leaves will also go well for this recipe.


Preparation time: 30 - 35 minutes
Time for the dough to set: 30 minutes
Yield: 8 Rotis

Ingredients:
Spinach (Palak), fenugreek or dill leaves - 1 1/2 bunch
Wheat flour - 2 cups
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Gram (Besan) flour - 1 cup
Baking powder - a pinch
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Ginger green chilli paste - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Cooking oil


Method:
Clean the spinach and chop it finely.
Combine all the flours, baking powder and turmeric powder in a miking bowl. Add 2 tbsp oil and mix it nicely.
Add chopped spinach, ginger- garlic paste and salt to taste and mix it well. Add water little by little and prepare thick, non sticky dough.
Keep the batter closed with a lid and allow to set for half an hour.
Make lemon size balls from the dough and roll them into thin circles. You can use some wheat flour while rolling the Rotis.
Cook the Roti on hot tawa by applying oil on both the sides.
Serve hot Rotis with your kind of side dish!
This Roti will remain smooth after cooling. So, you can plan it for the lunch box as well!
