  • 250 g whole wheat flour / atta
  • water
  • salt
  • leaves Fresh methi250g chopped  cleaned
  • chilies 1 or 2 green finely chopped
  • ½ tablespoon grated ginger
  • Salt to taste
  • teaspoon red chilli ½powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ajwain
  • 2 Tbsps ghee


  • Take whole wheat flour in a mixing bowl add some salt just to taste and make a soft and pliable dough.
  • knead the dough for 2-3 minutes as that helps to release the glutton and hence ease of rolling out paratha and soft dough. Keep it for atlas 10-20 minutes before rolling it for paratha.
  • As dough is kept for resting you can make filling/stuffing for paneer paratha.
  • Take chopped methi leaves in a mixing bowl, red chilli powder, chopped green chilli, grated ginger, ajwain and mix it well.
  • Some people add many spices like garam masala powder etc but I like to keep the stuffed paratha simple and less complicated so this works fine.
  • Mix everything well.
  • Divide the dough into 4-5 parts, roll it in the palm of your hands to make round balls.
  • Now dust these balls with dry flour and roll with a rolling pin to make a circle of 5-6 inch diameter.
  • Place the methi filling in the center of the circle and lift the edges one by one and bring back to the center so as to make a roundish ball once again.
  • Now dust this stuffed ball again with some flour and with gentle movement roll it out once again to about 6-7 inch diameter circle.
  • Heat up a griddle or tava and smear it with small quantity of ghee and place this paratha over the tava.
  • When it is cooked from one side, apply melted ghee on the other side and flip it with a spatula once again.
  • Cook the second side till brown spots start to appear. Check another side once again and if it is cooked just take it out of the lava onto a plate, otherwise cook it some more.
