  • Take whole Wheat flour and cooked spinach in a mixing bowl, add 1/2 cup of warm water and mix.Make a soft dough by adding little more water.Knead well.You should be able to make balls out of the dough.
  • Now take the lemon size dough, make smooth ball.
  • Take some dry flour on a flat surface and  roll the dough  using a rolling pin. Do not roll into very thin parata.
  • Then cook the Parata on a pre-heated pan/thava, smear some Oil while cooking.Cook both the sides until you see light brown patches.
