  1. Methi parathas are my favorite! After I found how to make it, I have even stopped making plain rotis. I use a wet grinder with a dough mixing hook to knead the dough.

  2. I just love parathas. Haven’t mastered them so I always buy frozen ones. But they’re plain. This takes them to another level. Will give this a try. Thanks for posting.

  3. yumm! so healthy and great in taste.
