Methi Paratha or Fenugreek Leaves Indian Bread

Methi Paratha Methi Paratha
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.
