Methi Paratha:

Methi Paratha is a wonderfully tasty, nutritious breakfast dish, packed with unique flavor. This flaky Indian bread makes a very healthy alternative to plain parathas.   

These methi parathas can be made very easily. It is made up of whole wheat flour and fenugreek leaves. The methi leaves added gives nice color to the paratha. Wilth its yummy taste, no doubt it will turn one huge favorite of your family too..:)

It is best served with pickles, raitha or plain yoghurt.

We know fenugreek leaves are very healthy as they’re rich in iron content, anti-oxidant and dietary fibre.
If you do not get methi leaves, you can also substitute spinach ( palak ) with the same recipe.
