Methi parathas recipe / fenugreek leaves flatbread

I buy methi /fenugreek leaves whenever I go to mustafa (Indian stores) and certainly parathas and methi pulao is in the menu and the rest of the leaves is used for some kind of side dish with chapati, usually in combination with peas and potatoes.


Methi parathas is a favourite at home and we all usually love it with carrot raitha. So as fenugreek or methi is a a very healthy green , this is my entry for SWC- cooking with greens , an event going on in my blog which was originally started by Lakshmi. You can/should read everything about fenugreek here.

I have seen different ways of making these parathas. I make it this way. But you can saute the methi leaves before adding to the wheat flour. I prefer to add it as it is to the flour.
