Methi Roti/chapathi

As I have said earlier I love gardening,but no way for me in apartments,but I try to do some planting here.This leaves too I grow in my apartments.I pray that in future I must have an individual house so that I can have my own garden.

This methi leaves is rich in antioxidant,iron and good source of fibre,its diabetic friendly too.Try to use it once a week.If you don't get this leaves ,try to sow some methi seeds in any container ,it will surely grow.
