Methi is an ingredient normally used to make rotis and parathas , but usually it is either sautéed or blended and added to the dough itself.
These Stuffed Methi Parathas are quite different because methi is used as a stuffing. The sautéed greens are bound together with besan and flavoured jazzily with chaat masala. Since the methi mixture is stuffed into the parathas, its quantity is more and its flavour is very noticeable.
So, for those who love the pleasant bitterness and strong aroma of methi, this paratha is a dream come true. Serve these flavour-packed parathas for breakfast with a cup of curds.
You can also try these other parathas with unusual stuffing like Papad Stuffed Parathas , Spicy Rice Parathas and Stir-Fried Vegetable Parathas .
