Palak Ki Roti (spinach Flavoured Indian Flat Bread)

My mother always ensures that we have our breakfast before leaving the house for school. She believes, Breakfast is the most important meal and it should be wholesome. Even if we have to leave house at 7 am in the morning, She gets up at 6 and prepares our breakfast. I like her stuffed parathas and different flavoured chppatis which do not require any side dish . Palak ki roti is one of the easiest, flavorful and wholesome option.
