1 Large Bowl for making the dough.
1 Medium Bowl
1 Medium non-stick pan
1 Flat Silicon/Steel/Wooden Spatula for Sauteing
Aluminum Foil Sheet
½ Cup any Flour to Roll Paratha
½ Cup Oil – Any Flavorless oil for sautéing the Paratha

½ Cup Warm Water
1½ Cups Spinach – Fresh or Frozen (Chopped Finely) ½ Cups Cottage Cheese (Paneer)
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Red Chili Powder –Optional
In a large bowl, mix whole wheat flour, oil, water and form a slightly firm dough. Keep aside.
In a medium bowl, mix spinach, cottage cheese, salt, red chili powder and make a smooth mix.
Make 10-12 balls from the already prepared dough.
Take dough balls and roll each of them into small disc (size of your palm).
Now take one disc at a time, mold it like a bowl in your palm and fill it with 1 Tbsp of prepared filling leaving some extra dough on the outside. Close the tips of the formed bowl and make it into a ball of dough again. Repeat this step till all the dough balls are filled with filling. (As per picture above)
Now roll each filled dough ball into a disc of 4-5 inch, keep aside.
Heat the non-stick pan on high and put one disc/paratha at a time. As soon as you see bubbles on the side up, turn it around and dab oil on it. Now turn to other side and dab oil on the other side too.
Saute till golden brown in color and repeat this step till all paratha’s are prepared.
