Paratha is a nutritious and filling meal for a child. My son gets paratha in Tiffin at least thrice a week. He loves to see colorful paratha. For him this one is just a green paratha but I make sure is power packed with flavor and lots of nutritional goodness.
Methi ka paratha is also a great Sunday brunch idea too. My favorite accompaniments with methi ka paratha is some mixed pickle/achar and Lassi/Mattha or buttermilk.
Directions to make Punjabi methi ka paratha-
2 cups washed and chopped methi leaves
1 & 1/2 cups Flour/Atta
Salt & Pepper as per taste
1 red onion, finely chopped
- Mix all the ingredients together. Add water just enough for the flour to come together.
- Oil your hands and knead the dough. Rest for 10 minutes.
- Now simply make paratha as usual. Top with butter or achaar.
- I have not fried these paratha’s and just applied a little ghee on top after paratha is made.
For chaas/lassi (for 1 glass):
Simply add 2 tbsp Curd and 150ml of Water, Salt & Pepper and Roasted Crushed Cumin Seeds/jeera.
Blend in a jar and pour in a tall glass.
Hope you enjoy this meal!
