Methi Roti

I love winters as you get more of fresh green leafy vegetables. They are definitely healthy and with a little bit of a twist tastes great too. Long back I had shared the recipe for Palak Roti, today I am sharing the recipe for Methi Roti. Recipe is almost same for the both and it is very easy. It is prepared with fenugreek leaves and wheat flour.

Also try: Palak Roti or Paneer Roti.

Course: Main Course

Cuisine: Indian

Time: Preparation – 20 mins, Cooking – 10 mins, Total – 30 mins

Servings: makes 8-9 rotis


  1. Methi Leaves – 2 cups tightly packed (chopped)
  2. Wheat Flour – 1 1/2 cup
  3. Red Chili Powder – 1/4 tsp (optional)
  4. Water – to knead the dough
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Ghee – for serving

PS: 1 Cup = 250 ML

How to make Methi Roti:

  1. Take a bowl. Add wheat flour, chopped methi, red chili powder and salt. Mix well
  2. Add water as required. Start kneading the dough. Make a soft and smooth dough. Keep aside for 15 mins
  3. Knead the dough again a little bit. If it’s sticky, dust it as required
  4. Take a medium size ball from the dough. Dust it with the wheat flour
  5. Start rolling with a rolling-pin, dust again if required. Make a medium-large roti. It should not be very thin
  6. Meanwhile heat a tawa or a pan
  7. Place the roti. Flip it when you get the brown spots
  8. Once you get the brown spots on both the sides, remove it from the tawa with the help of the tongs and place it directly on the flame (you can even cook it on the tawa itself if you have an electric flame)
  9. Cook from both the sides with the tongs. It should be as shown in the image
  10. Remove it from the flame
  11. Grease it with ghee. Your Methi Roti is ready. Serve Hot!!!
