Methi Paratha Recipe - Indian Flat Bread with Fenugreek Leaves

Methi Paratha
Nutritious and packed with flavors these methi parathas are delicious and can be made as a quick breakfast or dinner. My usual choice is to add some mashed potatoes along with methi leaves, but this time i went ahead with only fresh methi leaves. I see to include fresh methi leaves in our menu either in the from of parathas or methi puris, both are our favorite.

Methi Paratha
These parathas are a combination of greens and some indian spices and is so easy to make as they are not stuffed and directly added to the flour. So with no delay onto the recipe.

My Notes:

  • You can add red chili powder and turmeric instead of green chili to get curry flavor and color. 
  • As i have mentioned you can also add mashed potatoes along with leave
  • Roll the dough slightly thicker so that they will puff up.
