“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” – J. B. Priestley

We woke up to the pretty white wonderland yesterday. Yes, the first snowfall of this season is here. It snowed heavily all day and night yesterday. And I am so thrilled to announce that we happily bid adieu to the Autumn officially. Life is going to be in black and white for 6 months and I am loving it. I am not a BIG fan of long cold and dark winter though, but the arrival of winter is always so amusing to me. I just can’t stop looking at the serene sight outside of my window when everything is white.

I can’t explain the thrill of little ‘A’ in words. She can’t get enough of the snow. She is super excited about the fact that winter is here. Yesternight she asked me, “Mommy, would the snow be still there tomorrow morning?”

Me: “I think so, but I am not sure.”

Little A: “It will be there Mommy, you’ll see in the morning”.

And as soon as she woke up, she ran to the window to look whether the snow was still there. And when she saw so much snow she came to me and started jumping with joy saying, “Yeahhhh, the snow didn’t melt. I knew it. I told snow not to melt and it listened to me. Now I will make snow butterflies today”.

Currently, I am sitting on my work table, sipping my favorite hot coffee, taking a glimpse of white snowland outside through a big glass window from a height and writing this post. This is what I call “Live life to the fullest. This is pure zen”. What else could I ask for a refreshing morning? Right?

Let’s talk about today’s recipe. This is Palak Ki Poori I was talking about in my previous post, ‘Aloo Poori’.

What is Puri?

A basic Poori or Puri is a deep fried puffed up Indian bread made with ‘atta’ aka whole wheat flour. Poori, in general, is a popular deep-fried bread eaten mainly for breakfast. I would recommend using canola oil aka rapeseed oil or sunflower oil for frying pooris. This way you will get lighter and less greasy puri.

Palak Puri or Palak Ki Poori is made with a nice combination of spinach and wheat flour. Any kind of poori is usually served as a breakfast, but you can have them for lunch or dinner as well. Also, this is great lunchbox recipe.

How to Make Palak Ki Puri?

This Palak ki Puri or Poori is made in two ways:

First way, where you add blanched and pureed spinach to the whole wheat flour and make a dough.

Second way, where you add finely chopped spinach to the whole wheat flour and make a dough.

Either way, this poori tastes fabulous. I personally like the pureed one because it gives a uniform nice green color to the puri.

How to serve Palak Ki Puri?

You can serve this palak puri aka spinach poori with any curry or pickle. I personally like it with Amritsari Chole, Palak Paneer, Achari Aloo Gobhi, Restaurant Style Shahi Kaju Curry, Rajasthani Besan Gatte Ki Sabzi, Restaurant Style Paneer Butter Masala, Restaurant Style Matar Paneer, Egg Drop Curry, Restaurant Style Paneer Do Pyaza, and Lehsuni Dum Aloo.

What are the ingredients you will need to make Palak Ki Puri?

This Palak ki Poori or Puri is not just an average puri. It’s an appealing and flavorful fried bread. And the good thing about this puri is, that it’s made with only 6 key ingredients which are:

  1. Spinach puree
  2. Cumin seeds
  3. Ginger
  4. Salt
  5. Whole wheat flour
  6. oil.

Palak ki puri is definitely not a light bread, but this is so full of spinach goodness. Anyone who doesn’t like spinach at all would love this Indian bread. Kids won’t even bother to know that there is any spinach in it. Little A loves it without anything. Whenever I cook this palak ki poori, she takes the hot puffed pooris and eats them without anything. She reminds me of my childhood. Even now, I do the same thing while frying pooris. Yes, these pooris are that good.

This poori comes with a nice flavor of spinach and hints of ginger and cumin. These are best served with any curry for a perfect balance of spicy and savory.

Let’s learn how to make Palak Ki Poori by following these easy steps.
