Methi Paratha – How to make Indian Fenugreek Flatbread : Learn how to make delicious and warm Methi Paratha/Indian Fenugreek Flatbread. They make great breakfast or brunch menu.Hi Everyone, Happy Monday and 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 off-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 these ‘ Methi Paratha – How to make Indian Fenugreek Flatbread ‘ were 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.Try them soon and do let me know How you ate them 🙂
That’s it for now, I’ll be back soon with another delicious yum by the end of the week.
