Thanks Kunad for , I was just to lazy to find out all the English names :- Just read your mom's recipe and thought I would send the English names of the ingredients to the Methi Roti. Methi = Fenugreek Jeera = Cumin Dhaniya = Corriander Atta = whole-wheat flour Pudina = Mint Kotamari = Corriander leaves Besan = Gram flour There are no equivalents to ajwaan the closest in taste to it is probably caraway seeds although not quite.
