Methi thepla is an all time favourite in my house. When I am too lazy to cook, I make methi theplas and serve it with curds and pickles. My kids just love methi theplas and so they have it without creating any fuss. Today, I had some paneer in the refrigerator. So, I thought of adding the paneer to my methi theplas. Here’s the recipe for methi paneer parathas.
2 cups Whole wheat flour
¾ cup Grated paneer
1 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
1 tsp Red chili powder
½ tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Cumin Coriander powder
Salt as required
Oil 1 tsp
Yoghurt 4 to 5 tbsp (optional)
Oil or ghee for cooking parathas, as required
Wash the methi leaves thoroughly, drain the water and chop finely.
In a mixing bowl, take whole wheat flour, chopped methi leaves, grated paneer, ginger garlic paste, yoghurt, salt and all the spices mentioned above.
Mix it well and adding enough water, knead into a smooth dough.
Make medium sized balls from the dough.
Take a medium sized ball and roll into a paratha with the rolling pin.
On a hot pan/ tawa, place the paratha.
Spread some ghee/oil on the sides of the paratha.
Flip it a couple of times till it gets cooked evenly.
Serve methi paneer paratha with plain yogurt or pickle.
