Palak Poori

This is a healthy version of pooris. I just added 1/2 cup of cooked palak paste to the poori dough with a pinch of baking soda to get lovely green pooris. This was made as an attempt to make my daughter eat palak. And at last I succeeded in doing so. Now my daughter has asked me to prepare orange(carrot) pooris and pink(beetroot) pooris. Isn't it great? I am sending this to Joy of cooking's Complete my thali: Roti-Bhakhri-Poli-Thepla-Puri-Rotla event guest hosted by Torview
