Fenugreek leaves have a number of health benefits, are very rich in iron. Beneficial to hair growth, can be used as facepacks to remove acne and pimples, effective in the removal of black heads. I have a read a lot about the benefits but have never tried using them as they have a bitter taste. So i tried making parathas and didnt feel any bitterness at all. Fenugreek leaves can also be used to make fenugreek dal, aloo methi curry, methi-moongdal dal etc.
Methi paratha a very simple filling breakfast
Wheat flour- 1 cup
Methi leaves- 1/2 cup
salt- to taste
red chilli powder- 1 tsp
paratha spice mix- 1 tsp
turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
curd- 4 tsp
water- to knead the dough
Clean the methi leaves, add curd, salt, turmeric powder, chillipowder, spice mix and mix well. Add the flour in small quantities and keep mixing. Add water and knead to a smooth dough.
Now add a tsp of oil to the dough and knead well again. Let it rest for half an hour. Divide the dough into equal sized balls.
Take a ball and spread into a round roti dusting with wheat flour as needed.
Heat a tawa, spread a tsp of oil and carefully place the roti and cook till brown spots appear.
