Paneer paratha itself is quite popular. Being succulent and flavourful, it appeals to everybody. Now, here is an even more exciting version made using low fat paneer that is perked up with aromatic fenugreek leaves! The methi contributes not just flavour but also substantial amounts of vitamin A and iron to this toothsome dish. Relish these Methi Paneer Parathas with low fat curds or raita.

great use of the most disliked ingredient METHI... the creamy gooey paneer and the the crisp outer layer of the paratha almost tricked my senses from the bitter taste of the Methi... if this is how methi would be served... i dont see a reason to say a no anymore... enjoy...
