1 cup chopped Fenugreek / Methi Leaves

1 tsp Turmeric / Haldi Powder

½ tsp Red chilly powder

2.In a large bowl, take the whole wheat flour, add chopped methi leaves, turmeric, red chilly powder, salt, and half cup cooking oil. 
3.Slowly mix the flour by adding very little oil and knead into a tight dough. Keep it covered with a wet muslin cloth for 10 minutes.
