Methi Paratha | Methi Roti

Methi Paratha/ Methi Roti, a delicious Indian flatbread made from wheat flour and fresh fenugreek leaves. With simple curry and/or raita, it makes a healthy balanced meal.

As summer has started here, i have started to grow fenugreek leaves and often make this paratha at home for our lunch. It's one of our favorites and making them using home grown fenugreek leaves is even special. 

Adding fenugreek leaves gives a great flavor to the paratha. To avoid the bitterness from the fenugreek leaves, always use fresh and young leaves which have very mild bitterness.

Tips for beginners 
  • Make sure to wash the methi leaves well and dry it on a paper towel for a few mins before adding it into the flour.
  • Roughly chop the fenugreek leaves for even distribution of leaves on the paratha.
  • I have used oil for cooking the paratha, but butter and ghee are also great for cooking the paratha.
Now let's check out on how to make the healthy and delicious methi roti.
