Methi Paratha

Methi they say is good for you in every form; it is known to be a good blood purifier. I like to have methi as methi zunka, methi with onions & red whole mirchi or my all time fave methi paratha. This recipe has been forwarded by my kaku & I would say the beauty of this recipe is how simple it is to make these parathas.
Ingredients, makes about 10 parathas
2 cups wheat ,1/4 cup besan, 1 cup chopped methi
1 tbsp sesame seeds, 1/2 tbsp ajwain
1/2 tbsp homemade ginger garlic (store bought ginger garlis has too much vinegar which kills the flavor!)
1/2 tbsp red chilli powder or more per taste, 1 tsp turmeric
salt for taste & 1 tbsp of yogurt
1. Mix the dough with all the ingredients listed above & make 10 medium sized balls. Rolla out the balls flat & make parathas. Shallow fry the marathas on eash side till the paratha is cooked.or crisp per individual preference with some oil or butter.
2. Serve with pickles or yogurt.
