Methi Huli Podi Paratha

Hi all,day 5th of my 7 day challange.Good to see many of you droping by to encourage me.Thanks for that.
Alright by now you have well understood that I am hooked to the flavor of Huli Podi . Now, last night when I was making these thought it would be better if I post it tomorrow. I tried to include some chopped methi leaves also. I was little skeptical how my folks would react to this new type of paratha, but overall they have given thumbs-up to me.

Here is how I made them

Methi Huli podi paratha
Fresh Methi leaves- half a bunch or roughly 1 cup of chopped leaves
Huli Podi - 2-3 tsp
1 tsp of red pepper powder
Salt as per taste
1 tsp of oil
2 cups of wheat flour/atta

Clean methi leaves and chop them up finely.
Now knead wheat flour with all the seasonings-huli podi, red pepper powder and salt and also methi leaves.
Divide the dough into small rounds
And working with your rolling pin, make rounds of 4-6 inch diameter rounds.
Heat up a tava and make the parathas one by one.
Cook each side till they turn nice golden. With a help of a spoon, smear some oil over each side. Serve hot with some subzi or chutney.
You may add any left-over dal and knead with the flour mixture also.This way the paratha's turn even more soft.

So far I have survived. Two more days to go now, to finish off my 7 day challenge. I am pulling up my socks and with all the steam that I have left I have decided to climb the uphill ahead. Check here tomorrow if I have posted something to be in this challenge.
Happy Cooking
