All the ingredients for grinding loaded into the blender jar, along with spinach

palak puree

Potatoes pressure cooked  and mashed

potatoes added to the spinach puree

Chilli, coriander and cumin powders added, along with whole jeera, ghee and salt to taste

All kneaded into a soft dough(water may not be required. If needed, just sprinkle a few drops)

Rolled into thin rotis, dusting wheat flour, then dry roasted on both sides, little bit oil and ghee smeared, roti cooked well on both sides, till some golden spots appear

Serve these extremely delicate and tasty rotis with pickle and raita of your choice. I served it mixing in some very very finely chopped onions to fresh curds, added some chilli powder and jeera powder, salt to taste and garnished with coriander leaves. It was heavenly!!
