Learn How to make Palak Bread Tikkis in today’s blog post. Palak Bread Tikki is a quick snack option that must be as a parent in your recipe repertoire. Combine Bread and Palak together with some available spice mixes at home and the result would delight your kids and would even trick them into eating spinach that they would go to any lengths to avoid in their meal.
I think breads would easily qualify to be one of the most readily available food items in any household. It also gets often overlooked when we are searching for some easy recipes for quick snacking. We often find ourselves in situation when we had consumed half a packet bread last evening and now nobody in the family wants to eat bread again today (You got fussy family too?). Rather than letting it pass the expiry date and then end up throwing it away, we could try using it in recipes like the one we are making today.
Palak or Spinach is part of my weekly grocery list. I usually include green veggies like Methi (Fenugreek), Red Amaranthus (which is red but still part of green leafy family 😛 Sorry for the bad joke), Spinach etc. Most of the times, I prefer making these as quick pan tossed, with few basic spices to keep the nutrients intact and on other times, Palak Dal is my go-to Dal preparation. Well on weekdays, when you end up working late hours and do not have time to make full meal (rice, dal, roti and sabzi), dishes like Palak Dal become my savior. I make steamed rice and Palak Dal and I feel I am sorted for the lunch and dinner both (yeah call me lazy).
However sometimes I end up buying and stocking extra bunch of spinach in my refrigerator and I am in no mood for veg or a dal but need some preparation that would tingle my taste buds 😊Palak Bread Tikkis are for such days. Perfectly spiced, shallow fried goes well with evening chai and fulfils your quick hunger pangs.
Enough about me, so all you lovely moms who juggle hundreds of tasks throughout the day so deftly but feel lost facing innocuous statement coming from your kids when they are back home from their evening’s play- Mom we are hungry.
