Hello friends… who doesn’t like a truly exciting twist in regular, day-to-day cooking which can surprise all family members by taste, texture and color? Nevertheless I always, often, every time would love to do such surprises in my cooking. One such attempt on last weekend resulted in me serving these golden green colored palak puris for lunch to my dear and near ones. My little pre-schooler son was super excited to see them on lunch plate which was a real gift to myself as I didn’t have to feed him that day.
I can state this palak puri as halfway healthy. Healthy because it has nutrients rich spinach (palak) in it, halfway healthy because it is deep fried in oil. The sauteed palak leaves are pureed then used along with flour of the normal puri making. Actually it is also possible to chop the palak leaves finely discarding the stem and then combining it with puri dough. In both the ways the palak puri looks gorgeous and tasty too.
You can turn spinach puri to HOT and Spicy by adding few green chillies while pureeing the palak. It would be an awesome treat to spice lovers but I was bit hesitant to use green chillies as kids don’t prefer eating spice. Breakfast-Lunch and even as snack this palak puri WINS for sure.
