Methi layered paratha


2 cups wheat flour
Salt to taste
1 cup cleaned and chopped methi (fenugreek leaves)
Oil as required

Make a soft dough of wheat flour, salt, methi leaves and water. Remember not to cut the methi leaves in advance as it turns out bitter. Keep aside for 1/2 hour. Make medium sized balls of it.

Dust with flour and roll into chapati. Apply a little oil/ghee and sprinkle some flour over it. Fold it into half and then once again apply oil and sprinkle flour. Fold once more into half to get a triangle. Dust with flour and roll it into a triangle paratha.

Cook on hot tava with oil/ghee as required till you get brown spots on both sides. Repeat for rest of the dough.

Serve hot with side dish of your choice.

I have some lovely fresh methi in my fridge which I would love to use in this recipe... but after rolling out all those puran puri's yesterday I would LOVE it if someone else could do it for me! :D
Lovely recipe! My Gujarati family make thepla which are similar to this paratha... it really reminds me of my childhood (and I assume it tastes awesome with a big mug of chai!)
