Mulaikeerai, which is called Amaranthus, is known for its health benefits. This is specially grown in India and Sri Lanka for medicinal purposes. It is rich in dietary fibre, proteins, Vitamins,Iron, Copper, Magnesium, Ribiflavin and Pottasium. In India, in all households, we try to add spinach atleast in one meal. And, here, we get many varieties of Spinach too.
I tried to make rotis with Mulai Keerai (Amaranthus)  along with its tender stems, which are  supposed to be the  power house   of so many nutrients. The chapathies may not be perfect round, that is perfectly okay, right? Which is important??? Looks or Nutrition??

Whole wheat flour - 3/4 cup
Finely chopped Spinach, well cleaned and washed - 3/4 cup
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Dhania powder - 1 tsp
Jeera powder - 1 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
Gingely oil - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil + ghee to roast the chapathies

Recipe Cuisine: North Indian; Category: Lunch/ Dinner
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 15 mts; 

Yields 5 rotis

Wheat flour, along with the above mentioned ingredients, ready to be kneaded

                                                  Kneaded dough, to rest for 1-2 hours.

Roll into chapathies, dry roast them on both sides first.

Then drizzle 1/2 tsp of oil mixed with ghee, and roast them to golden colour on both sides.

Serve hot with any dhal of your choice. Pickle and curds are also good accompaniments. In the picture below, I have served with Red Subzis Dhal Thadka
