Methi parata

This is my favorite parata.I just love methi in any form.It is easy to prepare and quite filling too.The mear appearance is itself so good.The methi gives out a different type of fragrance hmmm..i just love emme

Wheat flour -2 cups
Methi leaves- 1 small bunch
cumin -1 tsp
chilly powder- 1 tsp
turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt -1.5 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp

1.Clean the leaves and chop up the methi leaves very finely and add chilly powder,turmeric ,salt and cook in microwave for 2 mins.
2.Then add this to a large bowl with tsp of oil and salt and then add the wheat flour and hot water and mix up all together forming a soft dough .Then keep it aside for 30 mins.
3.Then roll out small balls out of it ,roll out into thin chapathi's.
4.Bake in a hot thava applying little oil or ghee on both sides till they get roasted well.
5.Serve hot with spicy pickles and thick yogurt at the side and enjoy.

Thats the very authentic gujju thepla. :) Look nice Soumya. :)

Sometimes I add 2-3 tsp of besan to make it softer and add 2-3 tsp of curd while making the dough. Turns our to be really soft. :)

You have read my mind. Methi Parata tastes best with with spicy pickles and thick yogurt at the side

During travelling, we carry Methi Thepala's which last for 2 / 3 days
