A healthy and flavorful chappathi!I just love this Methi Chappathi. It takes extra few minutes to saute the methi leaves but I tell you, it is all worth it. You will just love this chappathi when you taste it. You will fall in love with it. Some use the methi leaves directly while kneading the dough. You could also do that way, but when you saute and knead it with the dough, when you eat, you could tatse the blended flavor of chappathi, ginger, and not to forget cumin seeds. You will get a nice distinctive smell. I just love the flavor of this chappathi. It is worth giving a shot at it!
