Methi Paratha

Methi Paratha or Fenugreek Leaves Indian Bread

Methi Paratha or Fenugreek Leaves Indian Bread

I love fresh methi or fenugreek leaves for the slight bitterness they add to any dish. Each time I go to Little India, I scout around for a bunch. They are not very easy to find so when I do get them, I wrack my brain on what to make with it. Chopped Methi leaves and some other spices are mixed with Maida, make a dough and roll them into Parathas and cook on Hot Tawa. Methi Paratha


  • Methi leaves or fenugreek leaves 1 bunch finely chopped
  • Maida or all purpose flour 2 cups
  • Onion 1 large chopped
  • Garlic(Minced) 1 teaspoon
