Whole wheat PalakTofu Paratha is one healthy seasoned flat bread with full of nutrition coming from the spinach and Tofu bound in it along with the whole wheat Vivatta chakki atta. The interesting part of this whole meal paratha is that it not just goes well with the usual combination of curd or pickle, but can also be enjoyed with any side veggie preparations. This paratha makes happily to a kids lunch box as its a whole meal in itself. The spiciness can be adjusted accordingly if these are to be made for our lovely kiddos. The Whole Wheat spinach Tofu Paratha can serve you as a breakfast or as a meal at brunch on weekends.
3 and 1/2 cups, vivatta chakki atta
1 and 1/2 cup, spinach, pureed
200 gms, tofu, grated
1/2 cup, yoghurt
1 tsp, kasuri methi
3 tbsp, dill leaves, finely chopped
1/2 tsp, red chili powder

juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp + for frying, oil/ghee
Salt to taste
In a large bowl, combine vivatta chakki atta with 2 tbsp of oil/ghee and all the other ingredients mentioned.
Start kneading the dough, add water (if required) and knead into soft pliable dough. Cover with damp cloth and keep it aside for 15 mins.
After 15 mins, divide the dough into 14 to 15 equal sized balls or depending on the size of the paratha you prefer to make.
Take one ball, dust it with flour and roll it out into a disc of preferred thickness and size.
Place the rolled out paratha onto hot griddle and allow it to cook until light brown spots appear.
Flip and cook the other side as well.
Now brush the paratha with oil/ghee on both the sides and fry until proper brown spots appear uniformly throughout and they are cooked well.
Serve hot with some pickle or dry veggie preparation and curd on the side.
