Healthy and quick to make, we love to have Methi Parathas in our dinner. Here is how it goes-
3 cups whole-wheat flour
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
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.
