Venthayakeerai-Chappathy

#VenthayakeeraiChappathy or #MethyChappathy or #FenugreekLeafChappathy : Generally #venthayakeerai is used in the preparation of koottu [ lentil ] only. We all know green leafy vegetables are rich source of fiber, vitamins and minerals. So in order to consume #fenugreekleaves in a different way I have used it in the preparation of chappathy. Here comes the method of preparation.

Venthayakeerai Chappathy [ Fenugreek leaves chappathy ]

Ingredients :
2 cups                                 Multi grain wheat flour or Whole wheat flour
1/8 cup                               Amaranth seeds cooked
1/4 Tsp                               Shajeera or Cumin seeds
1/4 Tsp                               Ajwain [ omam ]
1 pinch                               Asafoetida
3/4 Tsp                              Salt
1 cup                                 Venthaya keerai [ Fenugreek leaf ], chop nicely
1 Tsp                                 Oil [ I used gingelly oil ]

Enough oil to make chappathy.

Method :
Wash the venthaya keerai thoroughly in water two or three times.
Keep on a cutting board or colander to drain water.

Take all other ingredients in a wide mouthed vessel.
Add chopped palak and enough water.
Knead into a tight dough.
Add a tsp of oil and knead until dough becomes soft.

Keep a tawa on a stove over medium flame.
Make roti using a rolling pin over a platform.
Put the rolled roti over the hot tawa.

Add few drops of oil and spread evenly over the roti with dosai ladle.
Flip the other side and spread a few drops of oil on this side also.

Transfer into a casserole after cooking well on both the sides.
Enjoy with lentil or with any side dish of your choice.
