Amongst one of our favorites in parathas is Methi Paratha. These healthy parathas surely feature on our dinner table as often as I can get fresh methi leaves. I also make these by adding Kasoori methi, but the taste isn't the same, right? So here is the version we all enjoy with a dollop of curds/yogurt or a choice of gravy curry (Seen in the picture is Malai kofta which will be posted soon ..until then drool over the pictures :) )!

Methi Paratha
Ingredients - 

Whole Wheat Flour 2 cups
Fresh Methi Leaves finely chopped 1 - 1 1/2 cups
Coriander-Cumin Powder 1/2 tsp
Chat Masala 1/2 tsp
Ginger Paste/Grated 1/2 tsp (or as per taste)
Garam Masala 1/4 tsp
Salt as needed
Water to knead the dough

Method Of Preparation - 

In a sauce pan, add a teaspoon of oil and saute the methi leaves until tender. Add in the masala powder, dhania-jeera powder, chat masala and ginger paste.

In a mixing bowl, add the wheat flour and the sauteed ingredients and knead well with as much water as possible. 

Cover the dough for about 10-15 min.

Methi Paratha

Make about 12 equal portions of the dough, roll out rotis and cook on both sides on a hot griddle/tava spraying oil as needed. Continue for the rest of the dough.

I like to store them in an insulated container and serve them warm!
