Breakfast Recipes : Methi Paratha | Spiced Stuffed Fenugreek Roti

As every one knows, Methi Leaves are very good for health. Here is a yummy, stomach filling breakfast recipe.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 4

  • 2 big bunch of Methi Leaves(Fenugreek Leaves) finely chopped
  • 4 cups of atta / wheet flour
  • 1 table spoon chilli powder
  • ½ table spoon turmeric powder
  • 1 table spoon garam masala powder
  • 2 table spoon butter
  • ½ table spoon sugar
  • 1 table spoon oil
  • Salt as per taste


  • Separate out the Methi leaves from the bunch. Clean the leaves by washing in water and keeping them in salt water for 15 minutes.
  • Take out the Methi Leaves and finely chop them.
  • Take a big bowl, add wheet flour, finely chopped Methi Leaves, chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, butter, salt and sugar.
  • Add water, kneed it nicely and prepare a soft dough.
  • Apply oil and kneed it once again at the end. Leave it for 1 -2 hours.
  • Roll out each and cook on a tawa or griddle until both sides are golden brown.
  • Apply ghee on both the sides, while frying.

  • Serve hot with curds and tomato catchup.
PS:  Finely chopped onion also can be added, if one likes it.  This dough can be prepared the previous night, which would make the parathas soft and less work in the early morning. One can even try with Kasoori methi leaves and ajwain, which increases the taste and food value.
