What you would need:

Take the Bathua leaves and remove the stems and wash them properly before boiling them in a pan for 5 minutes (without adding any water), and set aside. Add wheat flour, ajwain, green chillies and salt to the leaves and mix well. Use some water and knead the dough. Take a small size ball from the dough and roll it with the rolling pin. Place on the tava and sprinkle some oil and cook the paratha on medium flame.

Take it off the tava once golden brown in colour. Bathua Paratha is then ready to serve!
