Image result for english spinachEnglish spinach has oval leaves and green stems, both of which are edible. It has a delicate flavour and is best from May to October.

It is low in calories and packed with dietary fiber, and is a source of vitamin C, folate and beta-carotene.

If you are unsure of using the greens, say for example English spinach the best option is to cut it finely and add in the dough to make parathas.

So I will pack Egg paratha/ roll with Eclairs in Tiffin today.

  • Add water and knead it into a soft and smooth dough, once the dough is ready, cover it and leave it for 15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into equal portions, take one dough ball and roll it Roll out the dough ball evenly using a rolling pin into chapati/roti shape and repeat the process to roll the other dough balls
  • then fold it twice to form a triangle. Roll it out again to make a triangular sheet like a paratha, Repeat the process with the remaining dough.

The final preparation

  • Heat little oil in a pan put the rolled maida roti/chapati on the hot frying pan.
  • Cook it for a minute on low flame, flip it to cook another side. just like paratha.
  • Cook it properly from both the sides, once it is cooked properly, and as the edges start to crisp, quickly make a slit using a sharp knife along the folds and pour in half the quantity of egg.

Note – this is a very important and main step of sliting and pouring the mix

  • Tilt the paratha a little so that the egg mix slides in. Then flip it over and repeat the process on the other side.
  • Drizzle some more oil on the paratha and press the surface gently using the back of your spoon.
  • Increase the heat and continue cooking the paratha until it fluffs up and turns crisp brown.
  • The egg paratha is ready to get packed with tomato ketchup or sauce.

  8. I have eaten egg paratha quiet often. But when I was in college I used to get the chef in the mess to make a double egged omelette sprinkled liberally with a lot of green chillies. I would then proceed to place the omelette between too alu parathas and gobble it up with immense enjoyment. Those days I was young and my stomach agreed with anything. But I dare not try that kind of stunt at 52. But your menu definitely sounds exciting. I will try it out sometime.
