This Spinach Paratha is a very healthy one. People who are not very fond of Spinach would definitely like this paratha especially kids. This dish is perfect for breakfast and lunch box. I am not sure about the scientific reason behind why palak shouldn’t be consumed in the night. But I heard about some facts why it’s not good to consume a lot in night. One reason is spinach takes more time for digestion. It’s high in fiber and iron, that could be another reason. The limited amount of intake is always good. Pickle and Curd would go well as a side dish.
