Spinach Spring onion paratha

As per me Spring Onions take part only in Chinese cuisines.  But then it came into the idea of making parathas when the onion rates were exceedingly high.
And finally I added these spring onions instead of onions in my process of making palak parathas. And to my wonder it tasted more than the normal ones we make.
Now this recipe has taken a place in my cook book.

Serves  6-8 parathas
Prep time   10 mins
Cooking time 20 mins


For making Dough
6- 8  Spring Onions (cleaned and chopped finely)
6 cups whole wheat Atta
1 ½ tsp cumin seeds
3-4 pcs of green chillies
¼ cup chopped coriander leaves
as per taste salt

To boil and grind
3 cups Cleaned n chopped spinach (palak) 
3-4 pcs of sambar onion
5-6 pcs of garlic
¼ tsp jeera

First clean the spinach until the sand in it goes off. Then boil and blend the spinach along with sambar onion, garlic and jeera. If u wish to add chilly u can add 1-2 chillies.
Then added the above blended mixture with the ingredients mentioned above. Knead the dough with required amount of water until they become soft.
Keep it aside for some minutes. Now make uniform sized balls from the dough and make your spinach spring onion paratha.

Usually these palak parathas goes well even with curd.
