Palak(Spinach) Roti/Chapathi

Spinach (Palak) is very nutritious and good for health. It is a very good source of iron. My daughter likes this green chappathi  and you can have this with any type of vegetable curry. We had this with bhindi masala and it tastes great. If you are one of those amateur cooks who do not even know how to make normal chappathis, then watch this video first 🙂
