Palak Roti Recipe is a simple and healthy roti recipe made with spinach leaves and wheat flour/atta. The palak roti or palak chapati is an excellent breakfast dish and it is most popular across North India. I love to make parathas or rotis as they are quite healthy and tasty too. They can be made by stuffing any vegetable and can be eaten plain without any side dish.
