Too good! The garlic and the methi along with wheat flour - the proportion of each and every ingredient is just perfect. They were so soft that I enjoyed them just plain. But any subzi you make is sure to pair very well with it. The best part is that the flavours so pleasing that I did not even miss butter or oil that we are used to brushing on top of rotis.
