Methi chapathi , Raitha combo .

Methi is in season & fresh , healthy looking greens do beckon to be picked up ! How does one resist such a call ? Pinching out these leaves from their stems is laborious and time consuming , especially if it has to be done for a large family. But the goodness & flavour of this greens more than rewards all the effort. We love to have our methi chapathis with Tomato Cucumber Onion Raitha.


Wheat flour - 1 cup
Methi leaves/ fenugreek - 1 cup, chopped
Oil - 2 tsps
Onion - 1 small, chopped,
Ginger - a small piece,
Garlic - 2 cloves,
Green chilly - 3,
Curds - 2 tbsps.


Wash & chop the greens. Sprinkle the required amount of salt & rest it for a while. The greens release their moisture in the presence of salt.
Now mix the greens with atta & oil.
Grind the wet spices with curds.
Mix the chapathi dough with this paste. Add more water / curds if needed to make a soft dough. Rest for sometime.
Roll out chapathis & cook on a hot griddle with a dribble of oil.
Serve with any gravy/ raitha .


Chop Tomatoes , Cucumber & onions finely. Beat thick curds. Add a dash of salt .Mix in the veggies & garnish with coriander.
