Methi Paratha

Once in a week I prefer having Paratha or light food after having a heavy meal for the entire week,but having routine pulka/chapathi is little boring so I usually add leafy vegetables and spices.After long time I made Methi Paratha today.


Fresh Methi Leaves:1 bunch(finely chop the leaves and rinse the them)
Onion:1/2(very finely chopped)
Cumin Powder:1 spn
Coriander Powder:1 spn
Ginger Garlic Paste"1/2 spn
Salt:To taste
Chilli Powder:To taste:
Oil:2 spns
Wheat Flour:1.5 cups


1.In a pan pour oil,when hot throw in the very finely chopped onions,sprinkle little salt and fry till onions turn transculate,now add ginger garlic paste and fry till it leaves it raw flavor.Now its time to add methi leaves,fry for 3-4 mins till the leaves turn smooth.Finally add the cumin powder,coriander powder,salt and chilli powder to taste.Mix well and fry for another 3-4 mins.Turn off the flame when done.
2.Take a bowl,add wheat flour and add the methi masala,let the mixture cool,mix together to make a chapathi dough.sprinkle few drops of water if necessary.Now the dough is ready,rest the dough for minimum 30 mins to get a soft paratha.

3.Divide the dough into 6 equal parts,roll the dough to small round then fold the dough in and out to make like fan n then roll and them again roll down to a round paratha.Repeat the same with the remaining dough.
4.Heat a Tawa,when hot then place the paratha and fry it on both sides till we see light brown spots on the paratha.
5.Serve it with any cury/dal/raitha of your taste.
I served it with sorakaya kura and cucumber slices for our lunch today.
