Green Bhaturas

Green Bhaturas are spinach bhaturas or I call them kids delighting bhaturas. Hasini was so excited to see the bhatura in green color. Immediately, she asked me to prepare blue bhatura and purple bhatura! These are kind of dishes where I need not stay beside her to insist her eating them. I just served the green bhatura to her, and soon later she brought the empty plate.This gives me a big satisfaction to her happiness.

You need
1/4 cup Spinach washed and cooked in boiling water
1 tsp mint chutney

2 Cups Whole wheat flour
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp cumin powder
2 tbsp Oil
warm water for dough
Oil for frying

After cooking the spinach, grind to a thick paste with the mint chutney, cumin powder and salt.

Mix the flour with the oil, spinach mixture, water as required to form a soft non-sticky dough. Cover and keep aside for 10 to 15 mins.
Knead gently to make a smooth dough. Divide into equal sized balls. Roll out the balls into flat rounds. Typically Bhaturas are anywhere between 10”-12” in diameter. I have a small kadai hence I made smaller Bhaturas.

Heat oil on medium heat and lower the rolled Bhatura into the hot oil. Gently press the Bhatura down with the help of your spatula, this allows the Bhatura to puff up well. After a minute or so slowly flip to brown the other side. Drain on paper towels and serve hot with Channa curry, a wedge of lime and sliced onions.
