CRISPY SPINACH HEARTS (PALAK MATHRI)

It is quite true that most, kids are n’t fond of green leafy vegetables. But they are a much essential part of the diet.
Palak or spinach is a superfood with an array of health benefits. Not only rich in iron, but it is also one of the principal resources of pigments, vitamins & minerals.

Today I am sharing a snack recipe that will be loved by kids and adults alike and is very healthy too. I am using whole wheat flour for this hearts.
Palak Mathri is really crispy and tasty to eat. A great snack dish for the unexpected guest or for a get together on any occasion.

I love heart shape and have thus used the heart-shaped cookie cutters to make the mathris more attractive.
