Methi Paratha/Methi Leaves Roti

                         This is the first time i'm trying out this recipe and as always came well.My mom use to do this paratha once a while after she saw this in a cookery show.I feel this methi and wheat flour combination is best as methi leaves reduces the heat of the body while vice versa in the case of wheat flour.As the sunny season is going to start shortly i've decided that i will do it regularly as its easy to do and perfect for lunch box also.
                          Since i prepared this in the morning busy i was not able to take the step wise pics.I will try to upload the pics next time when i prepare the paratha.

Ingredients :

Wheat Flour 2 cups
Salt Req
Water If necessary
Oil 4 tsp
Methi Leaves 1 bunch

To Grind :

Onion 1 big sized
Tomato 2 medium sized
Green chillies 4 nos
Ginger 1/2 inch piece
Garlic 4 pods

Method :

1. Grind all the items given under to grind column.Don't add water during grinding and grind little coarsely.

2. Chop the methi leaves finely just before we mix with the wheat flour

3.  Mix the wheat flour along with the grinded things and prepare as a dough.

4.  Now make as parathas and toast as usual how we use to prepare normal parathas.

5.  Serve with any kind of raitas.

Notes :

1. I didn't add too much water but just 1 tbsp as tomato is already a pure and onion tends to leave water.

2 .While griding the items first i grind the onion little crunch and then other items.For the entire grinding process i grinded in the pulse side.

3. I used 1cup tightly packed methi leaves.

4. Chopping the methi leaves just before mixing with the wheat flour is very important as the methi leaves will tend to give bitter taste.
