1. 2 cup whole wheat flour
2. 1 bunch of fresh palak
3. 2 Green chillies
4. 1 tsp carom seeds

3. Take wheat flour in a big size bowl and add palak paste, salt and carom seeds
4. Knead into soft dough ( Use water only if needed as the palak paste should be sufficient and the dough should turn nice green in color)
5. Apply very little oil to the dough and knead again
6. Divide the dough in to equal size portions and roll into folded parathas with help of little oil
7. Heat tawa (flat pan/dosa tawa) and place the rolled paratha on it

Serve hot green parathas with mango pickle or tomato sauce

Kitchen Gyan: Same dough you can make into small crisp poories and store of couple of days in an airtight container. Makes a good teat time snack!!

2. Few fresh mint leaves
3. 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
4. 1 tbsp of honey(you can add more if you prefer more sweetness)
5. A glass full Water(cold preferred over room temperature)

1. Wash and clean wheat grass and mint
2. In a mixer, add wheat grass, mint leaves and water and grind for 2 mins
3. Add lemon juice and honey and again grind for 1 min
