Methi Paratha


I am on a roll today :) I like the little bitter taste of methi leaves in paratha or roti.


You need

Wheat flour - 3 cups
Methi leaves - Chopped 3 cups
Onion - 1 medium chopped finely
Garam masala - 2 tsp
Red chilli flakes - 2 tbsp (according to taste)
Curds - 1/2 cup
Mustard - 2 tsp
Salt
Oil
Ghee

Method
Heat ghee in the pan
Add in Mustard
Once the mustard starts spluttering add in chopped onions
Fry for 1 min on medium flame then add in the chopped Methi leaves
Fry till methi leaves start cracking
Add the fried methi leaves onto the wheat flour
Add in the chilli flakes, garam masala, salt and curds and mix well
Add warm water and make a soft dough
Cover and let it rest for 30 mins

Take lemon sized dough and roll it out into a circle
Heat the tawa and fry the paratha on both sides using ghee / oil as required
Serve hot with Curds
