Karisalankanni Keerai Chapathi - Keerai Paratha

Print Friendly and PDF
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.

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.

I have never heard of this kind of chapati but it is looking tasty. I will read the recipe carefully and then going to try this. I know that it is not easy to try something like this but you have explained it in a really nice manner.
If I succeeded in making this food item then I will surely share my experience.
