Cook Time : 30 Min

Total Time : 50 Min


Serves : 5
  • 3 cups fresh spinach (roughly chopped)

  • 3 cups wheat flour

  • 1 green chilli

  • 1/4 tsp ajwain (optional)

  • 1 tsp salt or as per taste

  • 5-6 cups oil for deep frying

  • 1 cup water or as needed


  • In a pan add 2 tbsp water and roughly chopped spinach to it. Cook this on medium flame for 2 minutes. The spinach would have wilted.
  • In a mixer grinder add spinach along with 4-5 tbsp water or as needed. Also add green chili and grind it to make smooth puree. I got 1 cup of spinach puree.
  • In a mixing bowl add wheat flour, some salt and ajwain. Mix together.
  • Add spinach puree with this and start kneading. Add additional water as required and knead to form a firm dough
  • Apply some oil on the dough ball, cover it and let it rest for about 20 minutes.
  • Knead the dough once again. Make small lime sized balls out of it.
  • Roll each ball into a puri using your rolling pin.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and carefully drop each puri inside. Fry on both sides. Press gently with a ladle to help it puff up. Keep the flame in medium to retain the green colour and prevent browning.
  • Serve hot with aloo curry, dahi, achar, chhole. Enjoy 😊
