But here i am sharing most healthiest version because i am adding flax seeds, besan and semolina in flour to make it more healthy and crispy. Flax seeds will give it nutty flavor. I know that you will definitely love it. So lets get started.


  • 8 oz.  spinach chopped

  • 2.5 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1/2  cup chickpea flour

  • 1/2  cup  semolina

  • 2 Tsp  flax seeds

  • 5-7  garlic cloves finely chopped

  • 1/2 inch ginger finely chopped

  • 2  green chillies

  • 1/2  tsp anardana powder

  • salt to taste

  •  1/4 tsp chilly powder

  • milk to knead the dough

  •  2 tsp desi ghee (optional)

  • oil for frying


Mix all the dry ingredients and add palak, ginger garlic and green chillies. Add ghee. Now slowly add milk to knead a smooth dough. You can skip ghee if you want. Chickpea flour and semolina can makes the paratha dry so, i preferred to add ghee. Let the dough rest for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes with wet hands again knead the dough for another 5 minutes.


Now take a small ball from dough and roll it with rolling pin to make a circle shape paratha.


On a hot griddle or pan grease some oil and put rolled paratha on it.


Shallow fry with little oil from both sides until golden brown.


Spread butter on it. Serve hot with curd/ yogurt.
