Methi Paratha

This is one of my favorite kinda paratha. Methi or Fenugreek is bitter in taste so the first thing is to get rid of its bitterness; to do that chop fresh methi leaves and soak it in water for 15 minutes. Squeeze out the water and take the methi leaves in a mixing bowl.

For this preperation the ingredients vary as per your liking but I use this -

1/2 bunch of fresh methi or fenugreek
2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup besan or chickpea flour
1/2 sp ajwain
1/2 sp cumin & coriander powder (I like to make it fresh by dry roasting & grinding the cumin+coriander seeds)
pinch of turmeric
1 sp red chili powder
1 sp ginger garlic paste
salt per taste

Knead everything with yogurt to make a soft dough and roll slightly thick parathas using rolling pin.

Fry these on the griddle by dropping a little oil by the side.

Serve it hot with yogurt, pickle or chutney !!
