Palak poori - Spinach fry bread recipe

Indian fry bread recipe - Breakfast - snack

Palak poori, also spelt as Palak Puri, is made with spinach and whole wheat flour.

You know spinach is good for you and your family. But you really can't expect the kids to eat that boiled, tasteless spinach as you don't like it yourself. So you need Pop Eye to convince the kids to eat spinach. And that works only as long as they are young.

Make a recipe like Palak-Poori and You won't need Pop Eye. The kids as well as the grown-ups will love the colorful Palak puris.

And you will love them (I mean the Pooris - kids... you love them anyway).

You can make this palak puri dough and keep it in the fridge and make pooris as and when you need.

You can also pack them for lunch to school or office. These palak puris are also good as picnic food or when you are traveling.

You may serve them for a party too as

They taste good for a day. Pooris are best when they are hot. And the aroma is wonderful.
