 Methi Roti:   Like us on Youtube for more Video Recipes
          ( Methi Leaves flavored Flat Bread )
 Methi Roti is healthy and simple North Indian breakfast menu. Its really tasty and also will stay fresh for 2 to 3 days. It combines excellent with fresh yoghurt or any hot n spicy chutney. I got this recipe from my North Indian Friend, Chandni, she is a great cook! 
 Although, the methi leaves has a mild bitter taste, 
It is enriched with minerals like Potassium, Calcium, Iron & Vitamins like C & K. The leaves have good dietary fibre and very popular as a spice.
