Karisalankanni Keerai Chapathi - Keerai Paratha

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum
Nowadays i am using karisilankanni keerai in my cooking twice a week for health reasons. I make kootu and this chapathi.But i would say,we love this chapathi more than kootu ;) It is very easy to prepare.I make this for my hubby's lunch box. It stays softfor hours and onion raita is the best side dish. I use the same method to prepare palak and other keerai chapathis.

  2. That is an excellent green chappati. I do not get any greens other than amaranth, methi and spinach. I try to make use of those to the maximum.
    Excellent way to add these greens.
