I sat online to look for recipes with methi leaves.I came across Methi Matar Paratha.To tell the truth I am really bad in making chappatis.But still wanted to try.So I followed the recipe and made these parathas.It came out really well.Trust me anyone who is not good in making chapattis can make this.My husband really liked it.( Surprising!! he usually thinks my chapattis end up like rubber)


1 cup Matar(green peas)
1 inch Ginger
2 cloves Garlic
5 Green chilies
2 cups fresh methi leaves,finely chopped
1/2 cup coriander leaves,finely chopped
1 tbsp oil
4 cups wheat flour
1/4 tsp kasuri methi
1 tsp jeera powder
salt to taste

1.Boil the green peas in hot water for 3 mins so that its cooked.
2.Blend the cooked matar,ginger,garlic,green chilies and salt together
3. In a mixing bowl add the chopped methi leaves , coriander leaves and the matar mix .
4.Add the flour and sprinkle water if needed.
5.Finally add kasuri methi,jeera powder and oil to the dough.Roll the parathas as thin as possible and roast it on both sides smearing some oil or ghee.Use some wheat flour while making the parathas because this dough will be little sticky.
6.Can be had with pickle or curd.

Thanks for coming over to Food-n-more and leaving such a nice comment. About the Bakarwadi filling I would say that a very small quantity of filling does come out, but that's a very very small bit. When you elongate the roll in your palms , you need to press it gently from all sides so that the filling stays put inside.
I am hoping too that mine will come out better next time.
