         Methi Roti are simply, healthy dish for breakfast or lunch or dinner. As fenugreek Leaves are enriched with minerals like potassium, calcium and Iron. Including fenugreek once or twice a week in diet is good for health. Methi roti can be served with any raita or subzi.


  Ingredients

      1 Cup of Whole Wheat Flour
      1/2 Cup of Fresh methi leaves/Dried Methi Leaves
      2 Tbsp of Oil
      2 Tbsp of Milk
      1/2 Tsp of Turmeric
      1/2 Tsp of Chilly Powder
      1/2 Tsp of Coriander Powder
      1 Tsp of Cumin
      1/2-3/4 Cups of Warm Water
      Salt as needed

 Method

  • Seperate the fenugreek leaves from the bunches and wash well.
  • Cut them very small as possible. I used dried methi leaves as I didn’t get fresh methi leaves.
  • Take a required water in a kettle and boil it.
  • In the mean time take a wide bowl and add flour, methi leaves, salt, oil, milk, turmeric, chilly powder, coriander powder and cumin.
  • Now add boiled water to the bowl containing flour. Mix well with fork and make a dough like you do for chapathi’s. Keep aside for 15 mins.
  • Heat a tawa or chapathi pan. Meanwhile make a equally sized balls out of the dough and roll it into a circular thin roti’s
  • Now cook the roti’s in medium heat. When bubbles starts appearing, apply oil and flip it to the other side.Let the other side also get cooked.
  • Serve with it onion raita or aloo palak or any subzi.


 Tips

  • When you use fresh methi leaves saute well in oil before adding to flour
  • You can add butter instead of oil.
  • Adding warm water and milk makes roti’s soft.
