Methi paratha/Vendhayakeerai roti/Fenugreek leaves paratha

Methi in all forms are very good.Because its bitter ,its good for diabetic people .Like other greens its iron rich also.Cleaning of the leaves may be difficult but its worth doing it for your healthy body ,right ?...Leaves should not be cut otherwise you are going to taste its bitterness in the dish you prepare .So whatever you prepare put the leaves full .So that you get the goodness without its bitterness .
I buy methi every week and do methi sambhar,methi dal ,other than that I do this paratha whenever i need a change from dal,sambhar .
If you are looking for a different paratha stuffing check this green channa paratha.
