Methi Paratha

I always had a doubt how to include methi leaves in our diet. I generally add few of the chopped leaves in sambar , also try adding them in curries.

 But this methi paratha is a better option as it doesn't have much of the bitter taste. So here goes the recipe.

Ingredients :

Fresh methi leaves - 1 Cup
Wheat flour - 2 cups
Yogurt – ¼ cup
Cumin powder – 1tsp
Chilli powder – 1tsp
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Water – ¾ cup
Salt – to taste

Method :

Clean the methi leaves and chop them. Roast them in a pan until they shrink to a smaller quantity.Add the wheat flour, roasted methi leaves and all the other remaining ingredients.Knead them into a soft pliable dough.

Now divide the dough into equal lemon sized balls. 

Start spreading them with a rolling pin. Make sure the roti is not too thin as it might get harder with time.

Heat a tawa and toast the roti on both sides until it gets cooked.

Methi Parathas are ready to be served with raita or any gravy of your choice.

Notes :

Turmeric powder is added to give the parathas a good colour. So it is completely our choice.
