Indian Methi Flatbread

Hi Everyone, Happy Monday!!!

Before we get started with these Methi Parathas – How to make Indian Fenugreek Flatbread recipe, hope you’ll (in the USA) had a great July 4th Celebrations which was also a long weekend.

So I can imagine a lot of BBQ’s / Backyard party or did you travel with friends and family?

We had a fantastic weekend with cousins (who were visiting us) and seriously, didn’t even know how time just flew?

In these 3 days, we visited some fun places from San Francisco to Monterey and the of-course food was a major part of our entire celebratory weekend (homemade yums to last-minute restaurants grabs…we had them all).


After all that eating and running around the city, I wanted to make an easy ‘One-Dish’ kind of meal.

But was also craving something Indian, so this Methi ParathaFenugreek Flatbread was our unanimous decision.

They are easy to make, healthy and fills you up for good 4-5 hours. For those who don’t know, ‘Fenugreek or Methi’ is a leafy vegetable from India (available in many Indian Grocery Stores).

The entire vegetable can be used from its seeds (dry), stem, leaves (fresh/dry) and it’s packed with iron, magnesium, and vitamins. Here’s a picture of Fresh Methi Leaves:

It actually looks very similar to watercress leaves but has a slightly different flavor.

In India, it’s used in many recipes from curry, sauteed vegetables, dry snacks or flatbread.

Our favorite way to have them is to use them in a Methi Paratha and serve it with a quick curry or pickle.

The dough is easy to make, just mix flour with turmeric, salt, water and fresh fenugreek leaves and make a smooth pliable dough.

Whenever I make them, I usually make a couple of extra flatbread be used later as a snack with a hot cuppa tea …. you seriously need to try this combination too, it tastes heavenly.
