Methi Parathas / Fenugreek Parathas




These parathas are made with finely chopped methi / fenugreek leaves and spices. This paratha is a nice way of sneaking vegetables like methi leaves by stuffing it in rotis or parathas since in my house they do not like leafy vegetables. Methi paratha is a quick breakfast recipe.  Methi parathas are healthy alternative to plain parathas and are packed with more flavors and nutrition. Fenugreek leaves or methi leaves are very good for health as they are rich in antioxidants, iron and are also a good source of dietary fiber. 


Ingredients

2 Cups Whole wheat flour
2 Tablespoons Chick pea flour/ Besan
2 Tablespoons Rice flour
1 Cup Methi leaves -  finely 
chopped 
1 Large Potato - Boiled and mashed
1 Green Chilly
1 Teaspoon Ginger

1/2 Teaspoon chilly powder
1/2 Teaspoon turmeric powder
1 Tablespoon Coriander leaves - finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Sugar - powdered
2 Tablespoon Curds
1 Tablespoon oil or ghee

Salt to taste
Ghee/Oil for frying 


Paratha Masala
1/2 Teaspoon Ajwain seeds - lightly roasted
1/2 Teaspoon Cumin seeds - lightly roasted
1 Tablespoon Coriander seeds - lightly roasted 

1 Teaspoon Saunf - lightly roasted


Method

Grind the ajwain, cumin, coriander seeds and saunf to a fine powder  the paratha masala is ready.  Then add the green chilly , ginger, curds, sugar, salt, oil, chilly and turmeric powder, make a fine paste.

Mix the all the flours together well. Then combine the ground paste and rest of the ingredients, mix well. Add water as required and knead to a soft dough. Divide the dough into equal portions and roll out each portion into a circle. Heat a girdle and fry each paratha on medium flame using little ghee/oil, till golden brown spots appear on both the sides. I used pure ghee to fry the parathas as they taste yummy and also gives a lovely aroma. 

Serve these healthy and yummy methi parathas topped with white butter or chilled yogurt or a pickle of your choice. These can be packed as tiffin to kids as they remain soft. The potato in this paratha makes it soft and  the paratha simply melts in your mouth. 




My Notes:

This paratha  masala I make and store, and use it to make parathas of any type,  this masala give a nice aroma and taste to the parathas.
