Palak puri is a wonderful breakfast idea, the colour is just from palak but so vibrant and appealing. This is also a recipe I learnt from my friend Sangeeta. Really easy to prepare. palak puri is made by adding palak puree while making dough for puri. This boondi raita is a perfect combo for palak puri, it goes well with each other. Enjoy the recipe 🙂

|wheat flour||1 ½ cups|
