Spinach Poori (Palak ki poori)

My Sunday Brunch Idea!!

Spinach is one of the most nutritious and healthy greens among all vegetables. Though low in calories, it contains higher concentrations of minerals, vitamins and other phytonutrients. Spinach also has a high calcium content.
Spinach is always recommended by the nutritionists. 
Don't you remember our dear "Popeye the Sailor Man"?? After all he becomes the strongest after consuming Spinach.

I generally don't promote deep fried food at home. The food submerged in hot oil is not so good but surely is a delectable way to enjoy food. 
Being a Sunday today & the demands coming in from my husband dear I chose to cook the hot sizzling pooris. Also, the fresh green leafy veggie was just brought in so it got me thinking & finally the recipe is here....

You need:
  • Spinach - 1/2 kg
  • Wheat Flour - 1/2 kg
  • Green Chillies - according to ur tolerance. I took 8
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Oil - for deep frying

Wash the spinach leaves & put them in a grinder with the green chillies. Grind to make a paste. Add the paste in the wheat flour with the salt to make dough. Knead it a little hard. If too soft the pooris will absorb more oil. 
Now, heat a wok  with oil in it for deep frying & meanwhile with a rolling pin make the pooris in the shape you desire.. mostly it is round or oval in shape. Now immerse it in the hot oil & voila the pooris are ready. Serve them hot with chhole or aamras.
