Methi Parathas

There are many types of parathas like aloo paratha, methi paratha, lacha paratha, plain paratha, etc. And these are made very easily with a very high nutritious value. Moreover you can add your favorite flavors. So I like to introduce you to the recipe "Methi Paratha".....

  • 3 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 bunch of methi washed and chopped into small pieces
  • 1 medium sized onion chopped into very small pieces
  • 1 tsp jeera/Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp of chili powder
  • 1 tsp of coriander powder
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Take a thava/pan, put oil season jeera until it starts sputtering
  • Add onions and fry until translucent
  • Then add all the remaining masala powders and fry for ½ minute
  • Now add the chopped methi leaves and fry for another minute
  • For the above mixture add the wheat flour and make dough adding water only if required.
  • Keep aside for 30mins with a lid covered.
  • Then roll the parathas as thin as possible and roast on both sides on thava until u see small brown spots and smear some ghee/oil if desired.
Preparation Time:
10mins for mixture
30mins for dough
10mins to prepare parathas

Dough is to be made not so soft not so hard then you get parathas very soft and thin.
Can be served with any curry or ketchup or even curd(yorgurt/dahi).

So Enjoiii tasty methi parathas and tell me....!!!
