Palak/Spinach Green Chappathis taste good and it is very delicious. These chappathi looks green. So I wanted to eat something green and healthy and which had some grains. Spinach is known as a rich source of iron. Spinach chapathi is a favourite at home. I love this green leafy vegetable and try to add in many dishes. The Spinach/Palak chapathi is not just colourful, but flavorful and very healthy too. Kids might also love the color and its definitely a change for them from the regular chapathis. Kids who do not like spinach may also like these green chapathis, not knowing what they are eating. So its a great way to trick them.
According to the USDA, a 180 gram serving of boiled spinach contains 6.43 mg of iron. spinach does contain a relatively high level of iron, compared to other vegetable and meat sources. Those adult who are animic can take this chapathi and sure improve their conditions.

Try not to add too much of water, if you add too much of water the flour will be sticky. The dough must not stick to the bowl. Now add oil and mix well.)
