Green Green Green!!! As I promised to you guys that this month is all about healthy meals. And when we talk about something healthy—what comes in our minds first, which can be considered so healthy? If you want my instant reply— it would be something which is very close to NATURE. Something which looks like nature. What exactly do we see in nature? I see blue sky and water, green trees & plants, yellow-brown mountains, sand, and clay!!!
And when we talk about HEALTHY and Green food, I would consider plants and tree based food. Yeah! And today I am making something ABSOLUTELY green with some fresh green leaves. Won’t you consider it as totally healthy??

Although, I am not making this paratha for the first time, but this time I was seriously planning to make it for so LONG. I have told you earlier about my 2 year old baby girl Adoria, who is really a Picky-Picky eater. And it has been a while since I am trying to make her eat some fresh green veggies. I tried giving her spinach in many other forms, but she wasn’t really keen to even try once.
I don’t know what happened this time, when I was making this aloo palak paratha. She came to me and said, I want it Mumma, I want it (in her baby language of course).
It was a bit strange for me, as she is never so keen with this dark looking green stuff!! And she kept repeating that she totally wanted it. I gave her a little bite of paratha and as soon as she tasted it, she said only one thing—it was ‘I LIKE IT’. It’s her thing, whenever she loves something she would start dancing and start saying, ‘I LIKE it, I LIKE it’. 🙂 It was a MIRACLE that she actually ate Spinach. Woaah!!! Felt like I conquered something! 😉

This is a great recipe which is prepared with quite less oil. I am using olive oil, which is also good for your heart—and this makes it a Victory dish, if I should say! 🙂 This paratha is stunningly spicy, and you can always play with the amount of spices according to your own taste. Aloo paratha is a traditional recipe, but Aloo-Palak Paratha is a true SENSATION—it’s a bit different in terms of flavour.
I have made this paratha with chopped onions, green chilies, garam masala powder, red chili powder, dried mango powder, fennel seeds, and salt. It is simply delish and the flavors are mind-blowing! I have used oil for roasting, but some people LOVE to use butter. If you want to use butter, go ahead. Anyone who will eat this with butter will never forget its wonderful AROMA. And it would turn out AWESOME too. This Aloo Palak Paratha is quick and easy to cook, and you can find all the ingredients easily.
