palak poori or spinach poori

My little one always waves his hand at everyone and gives them a cute smile. One day, while coming out of our building, as usual he waved his hand to a cyclewala grocer standing out. He thought that we called him and came inside the compound gate. He was carrying fresh palak/spinach from a nearby farmland and we bought three bunches of palak from him. The next day I prepared palak poori or spinach poori for Rithvik.

Spinach is a rich source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, folate, iron and moderate amount of calcium. As it also contains oxalates and nitrates, it would best to check for allergies after you give spinach to babies less than 9 months.

Those toddlers and kids who dislike spinach or any other leafy vegetable , this spinach poori/palak poori is a way to let them have it without their knowledge.
