Methi Paratha

Methi Paratha is one of those simple and healthy paratha dishes that’s perfect for breakfast.Methi or Fenugreek, like any other green leaves, has lots of medicinal properties and is used in Indian Cooking in a variety of ways.One just has to be a tad careful when cooking with methi leaves, because it is slightly bitter, and hence should always be used in small quantities.

In methi paratha, methi is combined with the dough instead of being used as a stuffing like in traditional parathas. To make the dough, take some flour in a bowl and add roughly chopped methi leaves, diced onions, chopped green chillies, salt, 1 tbsp oil, 1 tbsp curd(for smoothness), and a little amchur or mango powder (to take away the bitterness). Knead the dough with little water till it is soft and non-sticky. Leave aside for 15 minutes. Next shape into balls (slightly bigger than chapati balls), and flatten and cook it like any roti. When it’s almost cooked, add little oil or butter on both sides and cook on the tawa till it’s done.

You can have methi paratha with pickle or curd.Unlike other parathas, it does not require too much effort to prepare and is also lighter on the palate. So include this in your weekly menus and live a happy and healthy life :)
