North Indian Style Methi Paratha ( Fenugreek Flatbread)

Being a South Indian, stuffed or any other form of paratha always called for excitement in our household. The earliest memory I have of a paratha is of Aloo Paratha ( Stuffed Potato flatbread) is when my mum used to pack aloo paratha for me when I was probably in primary school, two parathas with tomato sauce. When I was older, whenever I used to visit my cousin (which was quite often), she used to make aloo paratha each and every time I decided to visit. Even after all these years the love and excitement for the paratha continues :)

I think this is the simplest form of paratha I have come across.
