Methi Thepla Recipe | How To Make Methi Thepla | Methi Roti Recipe

Methi Thepla Recipe
Methi Thepla is popular Gujarthi Flat bread and is prepared using wheat flour/atta, gram flour, spices and fresh methi leaves. Methi Thepla or Methi Roti is a healthy, flavorful and delicious recipe that can be served as a main course for any meal. This Methi Roti doesn't require any fancy side dish, just a pickle or beaten curd is enough for a filling and satisfying meal. Due to the addition of gram flour, the rotis remains soft even after cooling. This way, it is good to pack for lunchbox or for picnic.
Try to use fresh Methi leaves for good taste and flavor. I used homegrown fresh methi leaves, as it was too tender and fresh I used the whole plant, just trimmed the root and finely chopped the plant and used it to make Methi Thepla. If using store bought methi bunches, just use leaves alone.
