Methi Paratha

by Shyamali Sinha

Methi Paratha, another type of Indian flatbread. A winter special north Indian breakfast. This is a paratha that aspires to be everything you expect breakfast to be, healthy, filling, fresh!

Warm Methi paratha served with pickle is a massive hit in the Indian Breakfast menu. You can enjoy this paratha with leftover curry also. 

Not only for Breakfast but a great option for Office lunch too

Here is the trick to enjoy delicious prep ahead Methi paratha during winter for lunch at your workplace too! Use the SANDWICH MAKER. Don’t reheat your paratha in the microwave; it will make your paratha soggy! 

Please invest in a good quality thermostat lunch bag, keep your homemade frozen parathas in it, you don’t need to cook your homemade Parathas before you put them in your lunchbox. Within five-six hours your frozen parathas will be thawed, just before your lunchtime, place the half-cooked paratha in the sandwich- maker and spread butter the way we spread it on the bread!

How to Freeze Paratha!

I prefer to make a few extra batches of parathas, I divide them into batches and freeze them. Because you need hardly extra five minutes to knead extra cups of flour and 20 minutes extra cooking time, but I feel it’s totally worthy! Especially for my those busy and lazy days! All I do, I grab the parathas from the freezer and I heat them. Taste way better than all those store-bought one!

Methi Paratha – how to store
  1. You can freeze any kind of paratha up to two to three months. Half cook the parathas,  (watch the video to get a clear idea) 
  2. place one baking paper between two parathas, stack them as many as you want to make one batch. I keep six parathas in one batch.
  3.  Wrap them with foil, let them cool and keep them in the freezer.
  4. If you don’t want to freeze then, then you don’t need to place baking paper between two parrots, just stack them, and store them in a steel tiffin box or plastic food storage box, in the refrigerator. Consume them within a week.

This is how I keep them in the refrigerator!

  1. Place a clean kitchen towel on a cooling rack. Place one paratha on the hot Tawa, cook one side for a couple of seconds, then turn the other side, cook another couple of seconds.
  2.  Remove from the heat and place on the cloth. fold the cloth, else the paratha will be hard.
  3.  Repeat with the rest, when they are completely cool, keep them in a container, in the refrigerator you can store them up to a week.
  4.  When you want to serve, bring them into the room temperature, heat up your cooking pan, place the paratha and cook the way you cook your regular paratha. 
  5. cook one side, when you see the bubble on the top, turn the other side, apply ghee or oil on the top.
  6. Flip the other side, apply ghee again.cook for a couple of seconds, remove from Tawa and enjoy!.
