Kale & Spinach Lachha Paratha

Lachha paratha is a layered Indian flat bread. Generally lachha paratha is made with all purpose flour however I have used wheat flour. Adding kale and spinach make its more healthy and tasty. For kids who don’t like leafy vegetables, this is a great idea in order to feed them green vegetables. It can be packed in their lunch boxes and it goes well with sauce and any side dish.

  1. Hi Geeta,
    just happened to land in your page after seeing this yummy kale lachcha paratha on euphoric delights. Guess what i actually tried making it today and it did taste great ! Thanks for this great recipe. However i do have some beginner doubts in this – i did not get the folds right (refer step4,5,6). Did u make 3 separate rotis and then fold one over to the other to make 1 paratha ? I didnt understand that part. It would be great if you guide me .

    1. Hi Gayatri, Thanks for trying it. It is only one round roti which you make and then first fold back and forth from one side and then roll it in a circle.

  2. Hi Geeta I am planning to make this paratha in two hours. Can you please tell me proper measurement of kale leaves as it just says 3 is it 3 cups?

    1. Hi Urmi, Its 3 Kale leaf stems and it would be about one to one and half cup after removing stem and chopping. Also one bunch spinach would be around 3 cups. Thanks and let me know how it comes out.
