Venthayakeerai/Methi Chapathi

Venthayakeerai/Methi/Fenugreek leaves is very good for health. Chapathis with them tastes great. I love Venthayakeerai inspite of its slight bitterness. When I saw Yasmeen's Bitter Better health and Divya's Spinach Event made this.

Wheat Flour - 2 cups
Fresh / Dried Fenugreek leaves (Kasoori Methi) - 1-2tspns (See notes)
Olive Oil - 1 tspn

Preparation Method

In a wide bowl, put all the ingredients one by one and mix with water to form a soft dough. Once its done grease your hands with oil, coat the dough and mix it well to form a ball.

Leave the dough covered for half n hour or 1 hour if you have time.

Make small equal balls and spread to round shape with the help of rolling pin and board. If required spread little dry wheat flour on both sides.

Heat a Tawa/skillet. When its hot cook both sides till light brown with or without oil.

Remove it and keep in Hot Pack. This makes around 6-8 chapathis.

Serve hot with any fav. gravy or curry or Molagai Podi.

This recipe is going off to Bitter Better Health by Yasmeen and Divya's Healing Foods Spinach Event started by Siri

Notes - If you are using Fresh leaves slight cook them with salt and turmeric and then add to wheat flour if you don't like them uncooked.
