Step By Step Instructions With Photos For Makki Mooli Methi Paratha Recipe

  • Mix 2 cups of Makki ka Atta/ Maize Flour with 1/2 cup of Gehun Ka Atta/ Whole Wheat Flour. Adding whole wheat flour helps to bind the maize flour making the parathas slightly less brittle.

  • Add 1 teaspoon Red Chilli Powder, 1 teaspoon Saunf/ Fennel Seeds, 1/2 teaspoon Ajwain/ Carom Seeds & 1 teaspoon Salt, or to taste.

  • Then add 2 cups of finely chopped Methi/ Fenugreek leaves and 1 cup grated Mooli/ Radish to the mixture.

  • Add around 1 cup water in small increments to make a soft dough. Divide this dough into small equal portions.

  • Place a round ball of dough onto a flat surface and start patting it into a flat round shape using your hands. Use a rolling pin to gently flatten the paratha.

    Tip : If the paratha keeps breaking while flattening, you can also place the dough between two oiled plastic sheets and flatten it out using a rolling pin.

  • Place the paratha on a hot tava. When the paratha is slightly cooked turn the flame to low and cook till it turns to a light brown shade.

  • Put butter, ghee or oil on both sides. You will see small brown spots starting to appear. Shallow fry the paratha till it is completely cooked.

  • Makki Mooli Methi Paratha is ready. Serve it hot with Sarson Ka Saag, curd/yoghurt, butter, green chutney or pickle.
