Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES on by : Divya Suresh

We get very fresh fenugreek leaves here now in winter. Anything made using fenugreek leaves tastes awesome. I have also posted steamed fenugreek leaves subji here in my blog. Will try and post all the recipes related to this. I do fenugreek leaves paratha in three to four ways…. this is one among them. It gives a healthy feeling when we feed our family with these kind of dishes. Fenugreek leaves has excellent health benefits like…. it lowers blood cholesterol, controls blood sugar levels, etc and what not ! During winter indulging in dishes made of methi is what I like the most. Fenugreek leaves is rich in Calcium, protein, phosphorus, iron etc. The best method of cooking this herb is steaming….. so that all the vitamins are retained. Here I made little less spicy paratha because the accompaniment (guava chutney) was more spicy. So adjust the spicyness of paratha accordingly

  • Whole wheat flour – 1 cup
  • Fenugreek leaves – 2 cups
  • Red chilli flakes – 1/2 tsp (adjust)
