Indian flat bread with fenugreek leaves(Methi Paratha)

Sometimes at the end of a long day, when you are tired but still want that home cooked meal, parathas are the best option. I like to make different kinds of parathas, hubby's favorite being methi parathas. Have them with yogurt or pickles. We also love to have them with leftover chicken curry. Trust me, really tastes yummy.:)
