Today, I am going to share with you a very healthy and satisfying recipe. As a typical Costco-loving family, their bag of fresh spinach tempts me into buying  and yet cannot finish it quickly enough before it gets mushy ( husband hates it when the bag is lying unused and gets dumped in trash).

This is my version of necessity (finishing  the bag of spinach) = invention i.e. a colorful and yummy variant of the classic Indian bread a.k.a paratha (My friend’s brilliant idea on putting the spinach to good use led me to this recipe, so thank you @Taraka Kaul). 

My kidz love this yummy delight!  Mm mm goodness is what they say!! It is also a great way to sneak in some greens into their diet 😉


  • Spinach – 2 cups
  • Plain Yogurt – 1 cup
  • Turmeric – 1/2 tsp (Ever seen Bobby Flay use this? He loves it)
  • Cumin – 1 tsp
  • Green chili (thai)- 2 or 3  more the merrier:))
  • Ginger – half a thumb size
  • Asafoetida – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Whole wheat flour- 4 cups + extra flour to coat during rolling
  • Water – about 3/4 cup (mix it in accordingly)


  • Blend all the ingredients aforementioned to a smooth consistency. This is a yummy spinach smoothie (lassi) that you may very well have by itself but not yet 🙂
