Methi (Fenugreek Leave) Roti - Fresh Methi from My Garden

I harvested my methi leaves today and I was so happy to see my produce. It was so fresh and crisp. I couldn stop myself from admiring my pot full of methi plants. I was overwhelmed by the harvest. This is actually my first harvest in our new house. With great enthusiasm  I planned my dinner with methi leaves. First thing that will come to our mind.... Yes! Methi roti. This was our dinner. When we cook food from our own garden, there is a great feeling of accomplishment, fulfillment, satisfaction and what not. 

Fenugreek or methi has so many health benefits. Helps in diabetics, Cholestrol control, Menopause, Hair growth etc. It has good dietary fiber and are rich in Vitamin C and K . They are enriched with minerals. Now let me take you to the recipe. 


Methi Leaves - 3/4 cup chopped
Wheat Flour - 2 cups
Salt - to taste
Onion - 1 medium size finely chopped
Corriander powder - 1/2 tsps
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsps
Red Chilli powder - 1 tsps
Oil - 2 tbsps


Take wheat flour, methi leaves, onion, chilli powder, corriander powder and cumin powder in a bowl. Add salt and oil to it and mix well. 

Now add water little by little and knead the dough untill it doesn stick to hand. If you feel you add extra water, sprinkle some flour and knead again. When done leave it aside for about 1/2 an hour. 

Make Chapathi's with the dough. 

Heat the pan and toss chapathi and cook it until it is golden brown on both sides. You could drizzle oil on top of it or could make it sukka. Serve it with Yogurt , pickle or dhal or subzi. I made 5 dhal subzi. Tasted very good.

  8. Hello AK! so glad you could join us on the hearth and soul hop! I love when new bloggers visit so I can then follow them! I found some wild fenugreek growing in my garden one year. A bird must have dropped the seed. I had never tasted it before raw, and it was a bit strange but i know when it is cooked it tastes very good! I also love making the breads this way, so easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing on the hearth 'n soul hop!
