Methi Paratha Recipe with step by step pictures

This is one of my favorite dishes,mainly because it has fenugreek leaves. But during my childhood I hated fenugreek greens.Well, not only fenugreek but all of the greens.

Mom used to sneak this into parathas and that I could tolerate. Slowly, I started liking it and now this is a regular at home.

Though I have made it umpteen times, the thought never struck me to put it up on the blog. I have already posted a Aloo Methi Stuffed Paratha , so here is the good old Methi Paratha.
