Methi Paratha

Recently I had shared the recipe for Methi Roti, today I am sharing the recipe for Methi Paratha. It’s one of the simplest parathas to make. It is prepared with fenugreek leaves and whole wheat flour.

Also try: Laccha Paratha or Pudina Paratha.

Course: Main Course

Cuisine: Indian

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

Servings: makes 5-6 parathas


  1. Methi (Fenugreek Leaves) – 2 cups tightly packed (chopped)
  2. Whole Wheat Flour – 1.5 cups
  3. Red Chilli Powder – 1/4 tsp
  4. Water – to knead the dough
  5. Oil or Ghee (Clarified Butter) – for shallowing frying the parathas
  6. Salt to taste.

PS: 1 Cup = 250 ML.

How to make Methi Paratha:

  1. Take a bowl. Add whole wheat flour, methi, red chilli powder and salt. Mix. Add water as needed and make a soft smooth dough. Keep aside for 15 mins
  2. Knead the dough again a little bit. If it’s sticky, dust it as required
  3. Divide the dough into 6 equal size balls (or as required). Dust it with wheat flour and make a small round with a rolling-pin
  4. Pour a few drops of ghee or oil in the centre and spread with your fingers or a spoon
  5. Bring and fold the edges together. Dust the folded paratha and start rolling to make a normal size phulka. Dust again in between if required
  6. Meanwhile heat a tawa. Place the paratha on it
  7. Shallow fry it from both the sides with ghee or oil. Cook till you get the brown spots
  8. Your Methi Paratha is ready. Serve hot with butter and curd or simply enjoy it with a cup of tea.
