Author Notes

Parantha's are the quintessential Indian dish that go as accompaniments to various curries. However, when flavoring is added to a parantha it becomes a delicacy in itself. There are various variants available but one of my healthier favorites is made of Spinach. It is quick and easy to make, and gives you your dose of greens too. Best served with curd and Indian pickles. —Supriya Jain

thanks for the recipe. It seems unclear if the spinach is thawed or fresh and what is meant by 'spinach mix'?
