Today, I am going to share spinach poori or palak poori recipe. This is a special toddler recipe for those children who do not want to eat a vegetable, same like my daughter 🙂
She never wants to eat vegetables so I always hide these vegetables in Poori, Paratha and chapati (roti). Same like Palak green poori, I have also tried tomato poori.
Spinach poori is healthy and delicious Indian bread which is prepared by spinach puree, wheat flour and special Indian spices such as a Garam Masala, Cumin Powder and other spices. Poori is always like by a toddler or elders but, when you try with vegetables like spinach or carrot or tomato. It always enhances the taste of puri.
