Methi Roti

This is one way of eating Methi Leaves in our diet. I usually make this roti every other week, so that my girls eat methi leaves. Here is the recipe for methi roti

  1. Methi Leaves - 1 cup (washed and very finely chopped)
  2. Wheat Flour - 2 cups
  3. Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
  4. Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. Red chillies Powder - 1/4 tsp (acc to taste)
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Sesame oil - 2 tsp
Add methi leaves, salt, cumin seeds, turmeric powder, chillies powder and salt to the wheat flour and mix it well. Add just required amount of water and make a nice and soft dough. Spread the sesame oil on top of the dough, cover it and keep it aside for half an hour to one hour.

Make small balls (a medium sized lemon) out of the dough and roll it into a circle form. Heat the pan, cook the rotis under medium heat. Apply ghee (optional) on top of it and enjoy it with some nice side dish.
