Quick n Easy Methi (Fenugreek)Parathas

August 4, 2006 at 4:13 pm 7 comments

Fresh leafy veggies are my weakness and I can’t resist the temptation of buying them whenever I am in the Bhaji Bazaar (Vegetable Market). I couldn’t resist buying a bunch of Methi (Fenugreek) leaves this time I visited the bazaar.

The best thing one can make with a bunch of Methi leaves is quick and easy Parathas (…says me). So here’s what I carried for lunch today…

Ingredients:

1 bunch Methi leaves cleaned, washed and chopped       

3 cups whole wheat flour (atta)

1 tbsp split gram flour (besan)       

 1 tbsp soy flour (Optional)

1 tsp turmeric powder

Red Chilli powder- as per taste  

Salt – as required

½ tsp sugar

2 tsps lime juice

Oil/Butter/Ghee for cooking

Method:

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

Knead the dough using water as required. The dough should not be too hard or too soft. Keep it aside, covered for about 10 mins.        

Make small lime size balls of the dough. 

Roll out each ball on a flat surface with a rolling pin into a circle. Dust some wheat flour if required.

On a hot griddle/tava, cook each paratha on both sides.Apply little oil/butter/ghee on both sides. (For the diet conscious parathas can be cooked without the oil or butter. It tastes equally good.)

Serve with Achaar or Chutney.

 Methi parathas are a favourite with my toddler too, though he prefers it less spicy!

    Paratha looks so good,especially so since the methi leaves still looks green after frying!

    @Thanks Sumitha.That’s the best part with parathas.
