Spinach and potato stuffed parathas

I love spinach and had a bunch with me today. In the mood to experiment? Try these spinach-potato stuffed parathas.

You will need:
1/2 bunch spinach - chopped roughly
2 medium potatoes - boiled and shredded
Wheat Flour/Chappati Flour - 1.5 to 2 cups and a little extra for dusting
Green chillies - finely chopped,to taste
Garam masala - optional,to taste
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Salt to taste
cooking oil, 1 spoon
water for the dough,about 1 cup

In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except water and shredded potatoes. Mix it well. Slowly,add water till it forms a dough consistency that is used for parathas. Let the dough stand for about 20 minutes atleast. Next,make small balls of the shredded potato and keep aside. Using a rolling pin and your kitchen counter top, start to roll out the parathas half-way. Stuff it with the potato filling and again roll it to an even shape.
In the meanwhile, heat a skillet on low flame. Place the parathas on the skillet and let it get cooked for about 30 seconds. Then,flip the side. After 3o seconds,smear both sides with oil and take it off the skillet. The cooking time may take a little longer than 30 seconds too,depending on the flame.
Enjoy with Onion raita and pickle or any gravy side.
