Masala Palak Paratha Recipe - Spinach Paratha | Breakfast Recipes

Rajma Masala
Palak paratha or Spinach paratha is a great healthy variation to the usual parathas.Methi paratha was the first time I tried greens in parathas and I fell for it the first time itself.I had little palak green leftover after making the palak dal so thought to make parathas with it. I found this masala palak paratha recipe and tried it for the first time and should say I loved it inspite of me not a big fan of greens.
