Methi Paratha

Spicy Methi Paratha with Dal Curry

Paratha Dough Ready for Roll

Apart form Aloo stuffed Paratha, you can stuff Methi leaves in the Paratha dough to make it more healthy and tasty. Those who love the bitter taste of Methi ( fenugreek leaves ), this would be a delightful variation you can try at your home. I came across few post where they have used grated bottle gourd instead of  fenugreek leaves.
