Fenugreek leaves are very nutritious. One way to incorporate this into our meal is by making paratha or roti. This is one of my favorite parathas. This paratha is very healthy, you can make this for breakfast or lunch box. I paired this paratha with cucumber raita, it goes well with pickle as well.

I also added some other spices like Ajwain, red chili powder, and garam masala powder. I personally like the flavor of Ajwain in his roti, so I added it. If you don’t want you can skip it. I also added a little bit of plain curd, just to reduce the bitter taste, If you want to cut down, you can do it, It will still turn out good.

Always prefer for the fresh methi leaves, If you buy one day before. You can pluck the leaves and store them in the refrigerator.
