Methi Ka Paratha Recipe | Methi Roti | Methi Chapathi | How to make Methi Paratha:Methi Ka Paratha is the first thing which comes to my mind when I see a bunch of fresh methi leaves. It is not required to do anything extraordinary to prepare tasty and healthy methi parathas. Adding few ingredients along with methi leaves to our normal wheat flour turn normal chapathi into a tasty and more healthy one. Every one will agree methi paratha has its own unique flavor. All credit goes to Methi leaves(fenugreek leaves). We call it as Venthaya Keerai in Tamil. If you want a paratha in different flavor but with not more effort, Methi Ka Paratha should be your choice.
Methi Ka Paratha Recipe was introduced to me by my friend Amrutha. She offered few parathas to my kid when she prepared once. My son ate it without any complaints and he liked it. I asked her the recipe. But she used to add few more ingredients like besan flour.
I forget it actually and followed my own way. But if she could not have offered methi rotis on that day, I could not have made it in my kitchen :) Here I have given simple and basic version of Methi paratha.
Now, let us see how to make Methi Paratha.
