Aloo Methi Paranthas

These days with winter setting in, it becomes a tad difficult to get up early mornings. πŸ˜‰ I love waking up early in mornings but not in winter. 😦 The problem with my sleep is i feel the most sleepy when the alarm rings. Snooze and sleep .:D

Making lunch box in such weather is a challenge. So after lot of thinking, i decided today to make this paranthas. I had boiled potatoes and some methi leaves in the fridge .So i combined them and this delicious paranthas were ready to be attacked on. πŸ™‚



Here’s the recipe:



Boiled potatoes: 2

Methi leaves: 1/ cup

Turmeric powder: 1/2 tsp

Red chili powder: 1/2 tsp

Salt as per taste

For the Dough:

Whole wheat flour: 2 cups


Ajwain: a pinch

Water: as needed.


  1. Take the flour, add salt,ajwain and water and make a soft dough.Add some oil. Keep aside.
  2. Take a pan, add oil , paste and methi leaves. Saute till the methi wilts.Add the spice powders, salt and the mashed potatoes.
  3. Β Mix well. The filling is ready.
  4. Roll out one portion of the dough into a Β circle using a little whole wheat flour for rolling. Place the filling, bring together all the sizes and seal.

Hi, I am Kavita, the owner of this blog.There are many types of foodies; vegeterian, non vegetarian, eggeterian , so i thought foodies should be called "foodaterian". Hence the name.Like most of you, i too was an amateur cook who didn't know even the basics like how much water to be added to rice?. :) With time i have learned and would like to share and learn the recipes. Hope to get love and support from all you wonderful people. You can reach me at twitter:
