It so happens that when you first learn to cook , we tend to stick to recipes and tend the stick to what is supposed to be done or things that go well with each other but as years go by we learn to experiments some turn out well some do not, but those which do not we have experience enough to make them edible and tasty.

I love experimenting with Parathas a Indian flat bread as its a complete meal you can incorporate vegetables and flours as per you choice and taste.


Methi Paratha

1 big bunch of methi leaves cleaned washed and finely chopped.
1 cup of wheat flour

1/2 cup chickpea flour or besan

1/2 cup rice flour

1/4 cup jowar flour or any other flour of your choice
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp haldi powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp each of ginger and garlic paste
2 tbsp sour curds
You can put 1 tsp lemon juice or amchur powder
1 tbsp oil or butter warm
Salt to taste


A very simple way of making quick parathas
Just mix all the above ingredients together and make into a dough ball
Rest for about 1 hour
Roll out into parathas
Fry with a little oil on a tava or griddle.
Serve with a dollop of home made ghee or pickle.Methi Paratha
