Directions

  1. In a blender or mixer, process spinach, cilantro, pepper, salt to a smooth puree. Add in only enough water for it to reach a thickish liquid consistency. In the bowl of a stand mixer using knead attachment or bowl of food processor, add green puree and upto 1 cup wheat flour, oil salt. Knead in machine till smooth dough turns out, sifting in additional flour, pouring in sufficient water for mixture to be elastic and pliable.
  2. Take dough out on work surface and knead gently a few more times. At this stage it should be smooth and shiny. Cover with a damp clean kitchen towel 10-15 minutes. Divide dough into 1- 2" balls. Roll out one and leave the rest covered. Have a flat top pan or griddle heated to medium on stove. Place rolled out round onto skillet. Heat on both sides, brushing with additional oil if needed(or butter:-) till cooked / burnished with brown spots on both sides. Repeat with remaining balls.
