How to Make Methi Paratha

By Naiya Sheth : Learn how to make methi parathas. We Gujarati people are very fond of different kind of parathas. We  make doodhi paratha, methi paratha and even mix veg paratha also. Methi paratha is known as methi na thepla and methi na dhebra also. It is very tasty and easy to make. As methi -  fresh fenugreek is used it is healthy also. I use half fenugreek and half coriander. My son eats it like a sandwich by spreading tomato ketchup and cheese. But normally it is served with ghee, butter, curd or pickle. It can be stored for 2 to 3 days. It can be served as breakfast or single meal dinner also.
