Methi Paratha - Fenugreek Leaves Flat Bread

Hello Friends.


Today, I am sharing a very frequently and commonly made paratha in my household. Love that it is full of green leaves and of course can be eaten just like that with some yogurt or chutney/pickle.


Methi Paratha - मेथी पराठा (Fenugreek Leaves Flat Bread)
Ingredients
Whole Wheat Flour - 2.5 cups
Fresh or frozen Methi (Fenugreek Leaves) - 1 cup, in case of frozen, thaw it properly before adding and reduce the water quantity as it will be pretty wet itself
Red Chili Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Olive Oil (or any other oil) - 1 tbsp
Water - 1 - 1.25 cups (add only little at a time)
Preparation

  • Mix all the ingredients first and then add water little by little to form a dough (not too firm, not too soft).
  • Heat a griddle (tava) on heat.
  • Dust your countertop or cutting board with some wheat flour and take a lemon size ball and roll it into a comparatively thicker flat bread than usual tortilla (roti/chapati) by applying some flour whenever needed.
  • Roast/Grill it on the griddle on both sides by applying little butter or ghee (clarified butter) till it is golden brown.

Serving
Serve it warm with some plain yogurt, raita (veggies in yogurt) and/or some chutney/pickle. Yum, yum, yum !!!


That's all for now. Take care till next post.
