Indori Palak Ki Puri | Spinach Poori from Madhya Pradesh

Indori Palak Puri

Indori Palak Poori is one of the popular dishes from Madhya Pradesh. These Puris are made with spinach puree and spices in atta and deep fried.

When I was making my A to Z Indian Flatbread list, this was one of the earliest entries listed as I had this recipe noted out long back. While I have a couple of pooris made with spinach, I still wanted to go ahead with this recipe as this seems to be an authentic version, plus the fact I got such a lovely hue to the pooris that I really wanted to share.

I had made this for dinner many months earlier. In fact, this was one of those handfuls of dishes that got done for this marathon early on. I made this for a weekday dinner and as I knew it was going to be stressful. I somehow convinced my boys that they got to eat this. And seeing my enthusiasm for making and clicking, Hubby dear was so impressed. He said I will go any length to make a dish for the blog. That’s one of the biggest compliment I take.

Once everybody had their dinner, I made sure my pooris puff up and had the whole setup ready. With pooris, its a straight to the click and back. Else the pooris fall down and I wasn’t ready to use ghee for deep frying to ensure they remain puffed up. I was totally impressed with the clicks and the taste later on!

So it is Indori Palak Ki Puri for I in the A to Z Flatbread and more, where I am making AtoZ Indian Flatbread. If you are keen to know whats for I in the AtoZ Dosa Varieties, you must head over there to read about the interesting dish I made.

Other Palak Puris where I made a mini version of Palak Puri and a version of Palak Poori made with homegrown palak.

  1. Indori Palak Pooris look absolutely stunning with that green hue . Beautifully puffed these are a treat to be enjoyed by them selves or even with a curry .

    I agree a puffed Poori needs to be clicked right away else the result is a flat one ! And must say you have got a perfect beautiful click !

  2. How puffy and catchy those puris looks, they are just prefect to tempt anyone. I love puffy pooris very much though am keeping myself away from deep frying in recent days. You are tempting me with those super puffy pooris.

  3. The pooris are absolutely droolworthy with such a beautiful colour. And I can relate to the feeling of a good dish and good photo for the blog…makes us feel so happy! Awesome pictures…super tempting

  4. Love the vibrant colour of the pooris and they are so puffed up and beautiful. I used to make this for Sruti when she was a kid, but didn’t know that this is an authentic dish from Indore..
