Protein Rich Super Healthy - Spinach, Mint, Cilantro, Avocado & Paneer Parata

Spinach, Mint, Cilantro, Avocado & Paneer Parata 

Tried out this new recipe today and I had to post it on the blog. It's been quite hectic at home and work, I cannot wait for summer vacations to start.
Farmers market are abundant with fresh produce. Picked up Avocado's, baby spinach and fresh cilantro last week.

Ingredients makes for about 10 parata's
2 cups of washed spinach
1 cup cilantro/coriander
1 ripe Avocado cut into cubes
1/2 cup fresh mint
1 green chili
2 cups grated paneer
2~3 cups of whole wheat flour
2 tbsp of garam masala
2 tbsp of flax seed (optional)
pinch of chaat masala
tbsp of tumeric optional
tbsp of cumin seeds
salt according to taste
1. Wash all the greens and pat dry
2. Chop all greens and chili finely in a food processor, remove from the food processor and grated paneer and  mashed Avocado and mix well.
3. Now add all the dry ingredients
 5. Add flour and mix well. Spinach and Avocado leaves a lot of water so there might be no need to add any more, but if the consistency of the dough is not soft add water and adjust accordingly.
6. Take a small portion of the dough, roll into a ball and flatten using a rolling pin.
7. Heads up, this can be messy if the consistency of the dough is not right. Add flour if you see the roti sticking to the rolling pin.
8. Warm both side of the roti/parata on a tava/pan, add a little oil to crisp the edges.
9. Remove from heat and serve hot with Raita/pickle and a dollop of butter

 Healthy dinner/lunch option. Parata's come out extremely soft and best when eaten piping hot
Have a good rest of the week everyone.
