Whole Wheat Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Methi leaves - 1 bunch
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Chilli powder/flakes - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Ajwain - 1/4 tsp
Remove the methi leaves and discard the stem. Chop the leaves. In a large bowl, mix together wheat flour, methi, all spices and salt and add water as needed to form a soft dough. Apply a tsp of oil to the dough. Cover and rest it for 30 min to an hr.
Makes small balls from the dough. Apply wheat flour and roll it into a round shape.
Heat a tava, and place a paratha on it. Keep the flame medium. Fry it on both sides using few drops of oil till it gets golden spots. Remove from tava and serve it with a suitable side dish.
I served my methi parathas with Papaya bhaji. Makes around 10 small parathas.
