Methi Pulka(Indian Bread with Fenugreek leaves)

When I was reading one of the blog, I saw pulka with some curry.So I decided to prepare Methi pulka,because I always use to prepare methi tepla and wanted to prepare something new.I tried a lot,but the layer was not coming on the pulka properly...Finally I used below method and I found some layers on my pulka...You also can tell me if you know any other method.

Whole wheat Flour 3 cups
All purpose flour 1/2 cup
Fresh methi Leaves (Fenugreek )1 Small bunch(Finely chopped)
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Cumin 1/2 tsp
Sesame 2tsp
Turmeric powder 13/4 tsp
Garam Masala Powder 1tsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 1/2 cup(divide and use)
Water to prepare dough and cook methi.

How to Prepare
Heat 2-3 tsp of oil in a pan and add sesame and cumin after 30 seconds add turmeric saute then add methi leaves again saute for a min and then add 1cup water and let it cook for 2-3mins in medium flame then add coriander powder,garam masala powder and also add salt,saute for 2 mins more,then turn of the heat.

transfer this in to a mixing bowl by adding 1 cup of water stir properly.Now add wheat flour and knead to make soft dough.Keep this covered for 5-10 mins then make 5-6 big big balls of equal portion.

Take a ball dust it and roll it out like normal parata.Now apply 1tsp of oil around the surface of parata and sprinkle 1 1/2 tsp of all propose flour on the above that.
Now divide the parata in to equal parts(around 6-7 parts)

and roll the each parts like ribbon rolling.

Make 2 rolls in each parata.

Now roll this in the rolling pin gently by using dry flour(wheat flour). Heat the tava

and transfer it on a hot tawa ,apply oil both side and cook til the light brown spots appear on both side.

The yummy Methi Pulka is ready to eat.This can be served with lime pickle and curd.
