METHI PARATHA

My Hubby loves Methi a lot and always asks me to prepare Methi Allo Bhaji. I was fed up with making the same every time.Since from yesterday Navrati started and during Navratri We do not Eat onion and Garlic. So I was just wondering what should I Prepare for the Dinner. I thought of Making Methi Paratha Which can easily go with curd or any other pickle.


I have seen my mom,sisters preparing this. so I was having an Idea as how we prepare this. But this was my first time that I was making this paratha all alone without any help.


It was surprised to me that the Paratha comes out so soft. I served the Methi Paratha with CURD
