Top tips

  • If you are using fresh methi first clean it then wash and lastly chop it.
  • Chop the methi leaves finely for stuffing.
  • Always make sure to cook paratha at medium to high flame, the tawa or griddle should always be hot while cooking if it is not hot then paratha will become hard just like papad.
  • If you have roti aata or roti dough already available then don’t knead the dough because that will work fine.
  • If you don’t prefer ghee for cooking parathas then you can use canola oil or refined oil.
  • Don’t leave the paratha after stuffing because the methi leaves have salt in it and it will release water so roll the another paratha while the first one is cooking on tawa.
  • If you have leftover dough or chopped methi leaves then store it in refrigerator and use it next day.
