Ajwain Kasurimethi Paratha Recipe with step by step pictures

Did you read the intro post yesterday?Well, the flatbread celebrations have begun and all through this month a group of bloggers will be posting Indian / International flatbread recipes.

As you would have seen the title, it is a paratha recipe and that implies my theme for the month is Indian flatbreads!

Let me tell you how I settled in this theme.

Usually the mega marathon themes are announced way ahead so that we can start with the prep works. So as soon as the discussion got going, I made a list of flatbreads and even prepared a couple of it.

Then came the usual lull and I let the list sleep. Two months back, blogging took a back seat due to some personal commitment and the mega BM plans were let to go into deep slumber.

But then one fine day ,I could not resist the temptation to join in and also who can miss a mega BM! So I signed up and again made a simple list of dosas and crepes.

In my excitement, I made a list of crepes / dosas all from one single state! Only when I read the announcement again did it strike me that it cannot be an exclusive collection. Anyway I confirmed this with Srivalli and made a list again.

The new list was done quickly but when I looked at it later on it seemed to be too mundane to present for a mega BM.

The next two days went in looking for better dosas and crepes and when it did not seem satisfactory,I looked for International flatbreads.

Something did not seem right. So one afternoon, I spent an hour to make a list of Indian flatbreads and wrote down their ingredients and method , making columns of dishes that can be clubbed to be made on one day,etc.

So here is the first dish from the list that came into existence because it was already made when the discussion about the event was being made.

This recipe was inspired by Srivalli’s recipe and I was wondering why I never thought of these ingredients together in a paratha!

I usually add cumin or ajwain in the dough but adding kasuri methi sounded so good! And I made this after I saw her post and a couple of times after that too.

Kasuri methi is dried fenugreek leaves and it can be made at home too. Check out the homemade kasuri methi that is so flavorful and lot less in price when compared to the store bought one.

  1. That sounds like such a flavourful combination PJ!! Want to grab one right away.
    And the dillydallying with mega BM is a regular feature of our lives I guess…I make more lists than dishes! Lovely beginning to the mega BM!!

  2. I love to add kasuri methi in dishes. If I don’t have any fresh herbs at hand, I will add these without even thinking about it. The paratha with ajwain and kasuri methi sounds so flavourful and would make a quite filling meal. I am so glad that you decided to take part in this BM. We have been missing your posts a lot.

  3. hahah..I still remember our conversation and I was excited that you could get a complete list of dosas from a state. Well, I too realized that when I saw my own list. Anyway, I am so glad you could make a new list. As Sowmya said we make more lists than actually make. I have a few more lists ready as well. This ajwain paratha is our favorite, I keep making it often. Can’t wait to see what comes next!

  4. So here I’m not alone. Even I was about to skip mega marathon but wasn’t feeling good about it. Valli gave me a chance to jump in at the last moment.
    We regularly make ajwainy paratha, adding kasuri methi is a nice idea making it more flavorful

  5. Mega marathon always comes with amazing stories and at the end every one succeeds with amazing recipes. I love this combination of the ajwain and kasuri methi. I always use ajwain in pooris and use the remaining dough to make parathas. Can’t wait to see the rest of your list 🙂

  6. Wow, kasuri methi and ajwain both together in a paratha, that definitely an awesome flavourful paratha na. I love to add ajwain often in parathas and rarely kasuri methi. Thats an incredible start PJ. Keep rocking.

  7. OMG! you made so many lists, PJ. I am sure all those lists will come handy in the future. We love this paratha and in fact this kasuri methi flavored roti gets done atleast once a week at my place and it never struck me that I could post it on the blog :). A great beginning to the mega bm. Looking forward to the rest of the list.

  8. I once read that one can use kasuri methi to make methi parathas/theplas too, where methi is not easily available. Your idea of combining fenugreek and ajwain is great..such a healthy paratha.

  9. I usually add kasuri methi to curries. Good idea to add to parathas. Planning for the Mega BM takes a lot of thinking and planning. Sometimes, some recipes may not work and you’d have to look for an alternate. What I love about these marathons that it just opens up a whole new world of cuisine.

  10. Ajwain paratha with kasoori methi looks interesting as both have strong flavors. With tea they taste heavenly. Nothing can beat this in comfort fooding.
