Green Power Rotis: Spinach Tofu Delight

Gluten Free Spinach Garlic Paratha 💚😍

Parathas hold a cherished place in every Indian household, offering a comforting accompaniment to curries, yogurt, and pickles. They provide warmth and satisfaction like no other. However, I’ve given them a nutritious twist by incorporating a blend of jowar and oat flour, enriching them with added nutrients and protein. In this rendition, I’ve also infused spinach for its vibrant color, along with a hint of garlic and tofu for a protein boost.

These gluten free parathas aren’t just a meal staple; they’re a flavorful and nutritious upgrade to traditional ones.

I’d love to hear about your experience if you decide to give them a try. Your feedback means the world to me! Enjoy every bite, made with lots of love.

Here’s how to prepare Spinach Tofu Roti:


  • 3/4 cup jowar flour
  • 3/4 cup oat flour (plus more for rolling)
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 200g tofu
  • 1 clove garlic (more if you like it stronger)
  • 1 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup water (for the paste)
  • Water as needed (for binding the dough)
  • Ghee (1 Tbsp for the dough and some for spreading on the rotis once cooked)


  1. Prepare Spinach Tofu Paste:
    • Blanch the spinach in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
    • In a food processor, combine blanched spinach, tofu, garlic, salt, and 1/4 cup water. Blend until you get a smooth paste-like consistency.
  2. Make Dough:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine jowar flour and oat flour.
    • Add 1 tablespoon of ghee to the flour mixture.
    • Gradually add the spinach tofu paste to the flour mixture and knead until you form a smooth dough. Add water as needed to bind the dough together.
  3. Divide and Roll:
    • Divide the dough into small portions.
    • Dust each portion with oat flour and roll it out into thin rotis using a rolling pin. Add more oat flour if needed to prevent sticking.
  4. Cook Rotis:
    • Heat a non-stick skillet or tawa over medium heat.
    • Place a rolled-out roti on the hot skillet and cook until bubbles start to form on the surface.
    • Flip the roti and cook the other side until brown spots appear.
    • Brush both sides of the cooked roti with ghee for added flavor and moisture. Repeat the process with the remaining dough portions.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve the Spinach Tofu Rotis hot with your favorite curry, chutney, or yogurt.
