Methi paratha can be made easily. Bunches of fresh methi are very sandy and must be washed thoroughly under water before using them.

How to make it
Mix All Ingredients together. Slowly add water and start working on the dough. Do not pour all the water at once. You may need more or less water depending on how thick or liquidy your curd was. Once the dough starts to bind together add water very slowly. Finish the dough up by adding 1 tablespoon of oil and form it into a smooth round ball.
Dough is ready. Let’s begin rolling our parathas. Make golf size balls out of the kneaded dough. Roll them in dry wheat flour. Lay it flat on a platform. Before we start shaping the ball, heat a tawa or griddle over medium heat. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into a larger circle.
Transfer rolled out paratha onto the heated griddle. Cook from one side and flip. Apply butter and using a spatula cook from that side. Flip and apply oil on the uncooked side, spread it over the paratha, press and cook until brown and fully cooked. Transfer it onto a plate and repeat the process with the remaining dough. Serve them hot with coriander chutney and Garlic chutney..
