Meethi paratha

Meethi parathas always reminds me of my school days when each of us would get tiffins filled with variety of dishes, mine was always dominated with south Indian dishes like idli or dosa, mostly others would get the staple chapati with vegetable sabzi, and my best friend would get usually stuffed parathas, like aloo, gobi, muli, meethi,egg etc. she being a big fan of idlis and dosas and me of parathas so we would swap! and the parathas tasted so good with home made lemon pickle yumm!! even now we talk about our good old days and yummy tiffins.

This recipe is pretty simple and healthy, I usually make this in stock and keep it in then freezer
and whenever needed just take out a few and pop it in the microwave, it is good as new.
what u need :-

wheat flour (atta)-2 cups
meethi leaves-1cup chopped
I use the frozen meethi cubes-2
turmeric-1/2 teaspoon
chilli pwd- 1/2 teaspoon
jeera pwd-1/2 teaspoon
ajwain-1/2 teaspoon
garlic-green chilli paste-1 teaspoon
salt to taste

mix all the above ingredients together by adding hot water this makes the parathas soft.cover the dough and keep aside for 20 minutes, than make a flat griddle hot and make small balls of the dough, roll out rotis if needed add oil when
rolling .
put the paratha on the pan, that is when one side is done on the pan, apply oil on it and then later on the other side as well and cook it till it has brown spots on it.
Serve hot with curd and your choice of pickle.
