Spinach juice: All you have to do is grind fresh spinach in the mixer, strain its juice and use it to knead your regular chapatti dough. And if your child doesn't like the taste of spinach it is an excellent way to sneak into his/her diet. Spinach is rich in iron and flavonoids and is great for your cardiovascular health[2].



Milk: You know a glass of milk goes a long way. But if you don't like milk you can knead your chapatti with it. Milk is rich in calcium and is considered an excellent source of protein too[3]. Since milk doesn't have a strong taste, it might not alter the taste much.  Also Read - PM Modi To Inaugurate Three National Ayush Institutes On Dec 11
