The word "paushtic" in hindi means healthy or life giving. This roti is a nutritious combination of a cereal and a pulse along with a green leafy vegetable, enhanced further by the addition of milk or curds. All of these contribute to make this dish rich in folic acid, iron, protein and calcium. Have these rotis instead of the plain whole wheat chapatis we usually eat.

Besan, whole wheat flour, spinach and potatoe mixed together with some curds to add the sourness to form the dough for the roti. I removed the potatoes to maje it a healthy roti.
