2 tablespoon Gram Flour

2 cup methi (fenugreek) leaves washed and patted dry

5 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil

1 tsp cumin seeds

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1/2 tsp red chilli powder

Salt to taste

2 chopped Green chillies

Method-

Mix the above mentioned ingredients in a bowl (1-2 tablespoon of oil is sufficient).  Add water as required and knead to form smooth, medium-soft dough.  Divide the dough into equal sized balls and roll them so that they are smooth and cracklesss.  Roll each ball with a rolling pin and dust liberally with more flour as you are rolling.  When done, pat out the excess flour.
Heat a tava and fry the methi paratha both sides to crispy golden brown.  Put some oil over the paratha as you do this.

Adding gram flour/besan makes them more crisp. It is optional to add it.

Serve hot with curd, butter, or pickle.
