One more paratha ,Greeny, greeny,that too a very healthy one.I borrowed this recipe from my bhabhi Santoshi.Last week she had parceled the paratha s and my kids had a competition on eating it,and next day I had to prepare it.And why not ?These paratha s are so healthy.No compromise when it comes to health. Palak and methi are loaded with full of nutrients.This paratha is one of the best paratha with the greens.You may also add methi leaves directly to the dough and add curds or milk while kneading the dough.These paratha s turned super soft and tasty.If you want the paratha s to be soft,once you fry it, immediately transfer it into the hot case and close the lid or you may also put it in a container and close the lid .This tip can be followed for the chapatis too.
