Healthy Vegan Kale Paratha - Indian Whole Wheat Flatbread with the goodness of Kale!
finely chopped kale [chopped using food processor]
finely chopped scallion or spring onion [only the white part]
whole wheat flour
also known as atta in India, some more to roll the parathas
some more to cook the parathas
to knead the dough
Wash kale leaves and dry them thoroughly. Place them in a food process and chop finely. Do use food processor here because we want the kale leaves to be chopped very fine.
To the chopped kale add chopped ginger, green chili and scallions (white part only).
Add whole wheat flour (atta), salt and garam masala and mix everything together.
Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and mix it well.
Start adding water little by little to the flour mix while mixing it all together.
Knead with your hands till everything comes together as a dough. The dough should be soft and smooth.
Smear 1/2 teaspoon of oil on top of the dough, knead it and then cover and let the dough rest for around 30 minutes, preferably in the refrigerator.
After the dough has rested, divide it into 6 equal round balls.
Take 1 ball and dip it in some atta. Press to flatten it. In the meanwhile place the tawa/griddle on medium heat.
Using your rolling pin, roll the dough to a 8 inch circle. I made these parathas quite thin, the stuffed ones are usually on the thicker side.
Transfer the rolled paratha on the hot griddle. The griddle should be hot at this point.
Once the side facing down cooks a little and you see some golden spots, flip the paratha. Wait for few seconds for the other side to cook a little and then apply oil on the side facing you.
Flip again and press the paratha with your spatula to cook the oiled side. Now apply oil on the 2nd side as well, flip and repeat the same.
Make all the remaning 5 parathas in the same way.
Serve warm kale paratha with yogurt and pickle on the side!
