Author Mukta Tikekar


  • 1 cup of whole meal flour I use whole meal rather than refined as it is more healthy
  • 1 cup of palak. Chopped boiled and blanched ( I save the water in which I boil the palak and use it to prepare the dough)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Two spoons of oil


  • Combine the flour and the blanched palak by adding little water (water in which the palak was boiled) and knead into a pliable dough.
  • Let the dough rest for 15 minutes.
  • Make small balls out of the dough and roll them out into nice circular shapes.
  • Heat a frying fan and fry them with very little oil. (I put them in aluminum foil so that it stays fresh.)
