sometimes simple small things give us happiness ,Like these Kasuri Methi Parathas, which are extremely simple and make for the most wonderful breakfast or dinner.







kasuri methi means dried fenugreek (methi) leaves.

you can make kasuri methi easily at home too,though it is easily avialable in market .i had made this paratha with skp chicken curry.

you can enjoy it with chole,paneer butter masala or even with plain curd and pickle.



i equally enjoy methi paratha and methi thepla ,but when you are running short of fresh methi ,the kasuri methi comes to your rescue ..try it and it will be a regular item in your lunch box....

i have kept spices minimum as i wanted a dominant flavour of methi ,but you can add any spices of your liking like garam masala,coriander cumin powder ,pinch of turmeric or red chilli powder ..

Ingredients:

Wheat flour (Atta) - 2 cups
Kasoori methi - 3/4 cup
green chilli chopped - 2-3 or Red chilly powder - 1/4 tsp
