Spinach Chapati

Spinach Chapati is delightfully delicious, incredibly interesting, and positively portable! It is nothing but a normal chapati dough which is kneaded with spinach puree. It is great for kid's lunch boxes.

  • 1 cup spinach leaves washed
  • 4 green chilies
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoon oil


  • Blend the spinach leaves with green chilies and ½ cup water. You will get about 1 ½ cup of blended paste.
  • Mix the wheat flour with salt, followed up by oil and mix thoroughly.
  • Add spinach paste (you don't need water) in small quantities and knead the dough until there are no lumps.
  • Roll the dough into flat circles with a rolling pin.
  • Place a skillet over medium heat and grease it lightly as the skillet heats up.
  • Place the flat dough (chapati) on the skillet.
  • Flip it when you see bumps rising.
  • Continue to flip until both sides are cooked to a golden brown texture.
  • Spread a thin layer of oil and flip it a couple of times
