Methi leaves-250 g
Chilli powder -2 tsps
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds-1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Wheat flour- 2 cups


1) Knead a soft dough with wheat flour, methi leaves, chopped onion, chilli powder, turmeric powder, cumin seeds and salt.
2) Make small dough balls and roll them to form chapathis/parathas.
3) Preheat a cast-iron tawa over medium heat. Place the rolled dough on the palm of one hand and flip it over on to the tawa. When the color changes on the top and bubbles appear, turn it over. Spray oil over it. When both sides are done, use kitchen tongs (chimta) to remove the chapati from the skillet. 

Serve chapathi with chutneys/vegetable kurma.
