Potato Methi Leaves Paratha

HAPPY NEW YEAR DEAR EXTENDED FAMILY.

HOPE THIS NEW YEAR BRINGS SOME PEACE FOR ALL OF US FROM COVID.

Having two weeks off was a great way to end 2020. I recorded so many songs, learnt many Stotras and Slokas. Didn’t try any new dish other than the normal food.

I had 1 boiled potato and a cup of methi leaves. It wasn’t enough for any other dish, so decided to prepare this paratha. Noticed it wasn’t posted here.

Ingredients:

  1. 2 cups Whole wheat flour
  2. 1 cup methi leaves
  3. 1 boiled and grated potato
  4. 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
  5. 1 tsp Red chilli powder (use according to your taste)
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  7. Water to mix
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Oil

Method:

In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, cumin seeds, grated potato, methi leaves, chilli powder and turmeric powder. Knead well adding as much water as you need to make a soft dough.

See picture below.

 

Now, roll the dough into circles using a rolling pin, just like you make chapatis. Roll out the dough in a round shape, about 4-5 inches diameter.

Heat the tava(pan or skillet) on a medium to high flame. Place a roti on the pan. Add 1/4 tsp oil and spread across the roti for 2 minutes. Turn, add another 1/4 tsp oil, and cook the second side for another 2 minutes till small bubbles form.

Serve with any side dish raita and any dal. I had made Methi leaves dal.
