  • Wash methi leaves, and chop it finely.
  • Combine all the other ingredients with the methi leaves and knead well to form a soft dough by adding sufficient quantity of water.
  • Cover and keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Make  lemon sized balls out of the dough and roll it gently to form a thin circle ,over a surface lightly dusted with flour.
  • Heat a non stick pan and put the paratha on the hot pan and cook on medium heat  for about 15 seconds.
  • Turn it over and cook on the other side for about 30 seconds.
  • Flip it over again and gently press the paratha using the spatula or a clean kitchen towel for a few seconds.
  • Serve with raitha and pickle or gravy of your choice.
