Spinach Chapatis with Multigrain Flour

I have already written some posts about the goodness of multigrains like whole wheat,bajra,jowar and oats.I have also added pureed spinach in the paratha to make it more nutritious.

Spinach leaves-2 cups,finely chopped
Ginger-1 small piece
Garlic-5 cloves
Gram flour-1/4 cups
Oats-1/4 cups
Bajra flour-1/4 cups
Jowar flour-1/4 cups
Whole wheat flour-1/4 cups
Green chilli-2
Salt to taste
Ghee(optional)- 2 teaspoons
Warm water-as needed to make the dough

-Add the spinach leaves,ginger,garlic and green chilli in a mixer and blend to make a puree.
-Take a vessel and mix all the multigrain flours together along with 1.5 teaspoons of salt and the spinach puree.
-Slowly add a little warm water to make a dough.Knead the dough well.The dough will be a little stiff.
-Keep this dough covered for 15-20 minutes.
-Take a small portions of the dough and dust a little wheat flour on the balls and flatten to make chapatis.
-Heat flat pan really well and add the chapatis and cook till both sides are done well.
-Smear a little ghee on the hot rotis if you like and serve with yogurt, green chutney,pickle,salad and some healthy curry to make a complete meal
