Methi(Fenugreek Leaves) Paratha

When it comes to parathas( kind of Indian bread) I am always game.We use methi(fenugreek) as an herb and as a spice.It has a nice aroma and is very healthy as the green leaves contain Potassium,Calcium and Iron.They are rich in fiber and also contain Vitamin C and K.So try and enjoy these yummy parathas keeping all these good things in mind.So eat healthy and stay healthy.

Methi/Fenugreek Leaves 1 bunch
Atta/Whole wheat flour 2 cups
Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
Green Chili 1-2

1. Wash and finely chop the methi leaves.
2. In a big bowl take flour,chopped leaves,chopped green chillies,salt,cumin seeds and mix all these with your hands.
3. Now knead this into a medium-soft dough using little water at a time.Keep aside for 20-25 minutes.
4. Make balls little bigger than you make for roti/chapati.Roll it into a small circle using dry flour.Apply little oil on it and fold it along the diameter to form a semi circle.Again apply some oil and fold it to make a triangle.Roll it in a triangular paratha using dry flour.

5. Heat a tava/griddle and cook the paratha on medium flame.Apply oil on both sides and press it gently with a spatula so that it cook evenly.
6. Repeat the process to make all the parathas.Serve hot with Pickle,curd or any kind of sauce.
