Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 6 parathas


measuring cup used 1 cup = 250ml

  • 1 cup whole wheat or multigrain flour
  • 1/2 cup tightly packed methi leaves (fenugreek leaves)
  • 1/4 tsp ajwain (carrom seeds)
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala (optional)
  • salt ot taste
  • oil or ghee(cook parathas)


  • Pluck the methi leaves and measure about 1 cup. Take large vessel filled with water. Soak fenugreek leaves in the water for 10-15 minutes. So all the dirt will settle down at the bottom and leaves will float on top. Now take out only leaves and lightly squeeze out the water. Then chop the methi leaves yields 1/2 cup .
  •  In a bowl add finely chopped methi leaves , ajwain, red chilli powder, garam masala, turmeric powder, wheat flour ,oil and salt. Mix well.
  • Add some water and keep kneading till you get the smooth dough. Dough should be tight and firm (not soft). DO NOT ADD ANY EXTRA WATER. Moisture from the methi leaves are enough to make the dough.
  • Make balls from the dough. I was able to get 6 balls.
  • Roll the parathas semi thick/ thin by dusting some dry flour.
  • Heat up a tawa/skillet on medium heat and place the paratha and let it cook.Once you see bubbles ,flip on to other side drizzle some ghee or oil on top.
  • Flip again and drizzle oil or ghee on the other side as well till they have nice golden spots on both sides.
  • Serve methi paratha with curd, pickle, raita ,ketchup or any gravy of your choice.
