How To Make Palak Paratha:
Winter season and paratha go hand-in-hand. We get to enjoy different types of parathas during the season - and palak paratha surely makes it to the list. To make this dish, you can choose any flour of your choice. We have taken a mix of atta and maida here. First, we take blanched palak, add green chillies and garlic to it and grind. Then knead atta and maida with oil, salt and palak puree and make a dough. Let it rest for 30 minutes and roll it into paratha and toast on tawa. And palak paratha is ready to relish.

To make bathua raita, whisk curd with boiled and chopped bathua leaves, salt and cumin powder. Then transfer everything in a bowl and serve with some chilli powder on it.
