How to make Methi Namak Pare Recipe

  1. To begin with Methi Namak Pare, firstly wash the Methi leaves a couple of times under running tap water and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Chop it into small pieces and keep it aside.

  2. Mix wheat flour, plain flour, green chillies, methi leave, turmeric powder, cumin seeds, salt, water and knead into a hard dough in a mixing bowl.

  3. Melt unsalted butter or hot oil and add it to the dough above. Knead a couple of times with hand and obtain the dough. Divide them into equal balls.

  4. Pinching each ball one at a time, flatten & roll it out to 1/4 " thickness using a rolling pin. Using a knife cut it into diagonal lines (diamond shape) or the desired shape you like.

  5. To check if the oil is at the correct temperature, first, pinch a tiny portion of dough, add it to oil if it raises to top immediately then oil is at the correct temperature, otherwise heat the oil for few more seconds.

  6. Deep fry them on a low flame until it turns brown in a deep fry pan.

  7. Drain them on a paper towel to soak the extra oil. Once cooled store them in an airtight container.

  8. Serve Methi Namak Pare with hot Masala Chai or a cup of coffee.
