    Spinach phulka or palak phulak is a north Indian dish and in south India, I thick it is not that much familiar. Palak is also rarely seen in the market. So today, I would like to try this recipe with normal green spinach which is easily accessible.

    To make this dish, I used spinach instead of palak. If palak is available, then use that.
    • First of all we will make a spinach puree or spinach juice,  take 150 grams of spinach in a pan, add 1/4 cup of water.
    • Once the water starts to boil, reduce the flame to low or medium and cook till the spinach became soft and water reduced.
    • Grind in a mixer grinder and make a smooth paste with 1/4 cup of water. Sieve it and keep aside.
    • Take one cup of wheat flour in a bowl, add salt and mix well.
    • Add spinach puree in batches.
    • Then knead and make a soft dough out of it.
    • Apply some oil or cover with a wet cloth and keep aside for  10 to 15 minutes. 
    • Knead again and make small lemon sized balls.
    • Roll into thin circles on dusted chapati maker. Make smaller and thicker disc for phulka.

    • Heat a pan, once hot, place the chapati.
    • Once start to bubble, flip and cook the other side also.
    • To make palak phulka, place this roti directly on the flame to puff up, flip again and cook for one or two seconds and immediately remove from heat.
    • Serve with any gravy type curry of your choice. Enjoy.
    Happy cooking
