Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making palak paneer paratha. Firstly, stirfry the chopped spinach with green chilies for a minute and make a smooth paste. Another most common way is to blanch the spinach and then make a smooth paste. Both are the common ways how to prepare the spinach puree.

Secondly, add this puree to the wheat flour with other ingredients. THen add water little by little and knead the dough until soft and silky. Then, stuff the paneer mixture in the center of the roti. Bring up the sides towards the center and pinch it to seal the stuffing. With your palms, flatten or press it down a little and flatten it further using a rolling pin until it is 6-7 inches in diameter.

Finally, Place it in a preheated skillet and cook for 1 minute. Then turn the roti and cook it for another minute or until it is fully cooked (you will know that when you see brown spots appear on both sides). Lastly, brush some oil or ghee over the roti. Now tasty and healthy palak paneer paratha is ready to serve.
