How to cook Indian Spinach Poori:
  • Steam/Blanch the spinach leaves with about 2 tbsp water till they wilt. Let them cool.
  • Grind the blanched spinach, green chilies, ginger, garlic, black peppercorn, coriander seeds, cumin seeds to a fine puree.
  • In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, gram flour, salt and sesame seeds. Mix the dry ingredients. Now add the spinach puree and knead into a soft, firm dough. Add about 1 tsp oil and knead the dough again. Let the (covered) dough rest for about 30 minutes.
  • Make small lemon size balls of the dough and roll each one into round puris ( 5 - 6 inch diameter) either dusting some wheat flour or using oil. Alternately,  you can use cookie cutter to cut out round puris.
  • Deep fry these puris and serve Palak Puri with ketchup or a curry.
