Palak (spinach) puri is an extremely easy and delicious way to include leafy vegetables into your toddler and kids’ meal. It works especially well for children who do not like to eat their vegetables. This recipe is another variation of our Palak Roti and for all these recipes, you can easily replace the veggies with those of your choice.

The ingredients used for this recipe are quite simple as well. We do like to add some hint of spices to this puri recipe mainly because of their digestive properties. Carom seeds and hing are super good for digestion and should be included in all our recipes. Instead of palak or spinach, you can add any mashed vegetables, such as beetroot, carrot, or methi.

These puris are usually eaten with a curry – our favorite being a spicy potato curry. You can also opt for aloo matar (peas), matar paneer, chana masala, or even dal as an accompaniment. These puris can be had for lunch, dinner or weekend breakfasts. Or mix it up and try it with our Kerala style stew which is really easy to make. You can find the recipe by clicking here

Note

Palak or Spinach: Palak or spinach is extremely beneficial for our hair, skin and bones. Spinach is rich in iron, Vit A, Vit C, Vit K, folate and potassium. Spinach is a super food – it is extremely beneficial in aiding hair growth, making bones strong, reducing blood sugar, reducing hypertension, providing our bodies with iron (especially good for people suffering from anemia).
Spinach is also a great source of fiber.

Wheat flour: Wheat flour or atta is a good source of protein and fiber. It does contain gluten, so may not be ideal for people suffering from gluten-sensitivity. Wheat atta is high on phosphorous, which works with the calcium in our body to build our bones. Wheat atta is also excellent in controlling the blood sugar levels of our body.
