METHI PARATHA

Fenugreek or methi leaves are easilly found in India, so oftenly I end up making lots of dishes from it. Fenugreek leaves are rich in vitamins, iron, potassium, a good source of diatery fiber, antioxidant and very beneficial to diabetic patients also. Methi paratha is a very healthy and flavorful substitute of plain paratha and simply melts in your mouth. Try this easy Indian flat bread, it is truely delightful.

INGREDIENTS:
4 Cups Fenugreen Leaves (methi saag)
2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (atta)
3 tbsps Oil
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp Roasted Cumin seeds (powdered)
Salt to taste
4 tbsps Oil for frying.


METHOD:
Wash fenugreek leaves. Drain all water from it.

In a large bowl, combine whole wheat flour, fenugreek leaves, red chilli powder, roasted cumin powder, 3 tbsps oil and salt in it.

Knead it nicely (without any water) to make a smooth dough. Cover it with wet cloth and set aside for 30 minutes.
 
Now make 10 equal balls from the dough. Place a ball on the rolling board. With a rolling pin, flatten the ball and give a shape of circle like chapathi. (if you face any difficulty, use  little whole wheat flour at the time of rolling)

Heat non-stick tawa/griddle. Place a paratha in it.

Flip when one side is done.

After 2 minutes, add 1/2 tbsp oil and spread it on the both sides of paratha.

Continue the same process for the remaining parathas.


Serve hot methi parathas with chilled yogurt or butter or pickle or any spicy curry.....choice is yours.
