Instead of methi leaves we can add any one of the following to the dough.
1. One cup grated bottle gourd and 3 tablespoons freshly chopped coriander leaves – It has to be added raw to the dough mixture, since bottle gourd gives out a lot of water when raw, you might want to add a little more flour if required to compensate for the excess water.
2. One cup of grated white radish and 3 tablespoons freshly chopped coriander leaves – I like to sauté the radish in 1 teaspoon of oil and ½ teaspoon of turmeric until tender. Once cooled add the sautéed radish and the chopped coriander leaves to the dough mixture and knead well.
3. One cup of finely chopped fresh spinach – follow the same instruction as with fenugreek leaves in the recipe
4. One cup freshly grated carrots and 3 tablespoons freshly chopped coriander leaves, following the same instruction as above recipe.
