Methi thepla- fenugreek flatbread is a signature Gujarati dish.It is a Gujarati roti recipe which is quite tasty.It is a sweet thepla recipe traditionally, however I do not add too much sugar in the bread.You can use various veggies to make different types of thepla, like spinach for palak thepla , grated bottle gourd to make lauki thepla recipe.
Methi breakfast recipes are quite healthy as it is iron-rich too.You can make it in advance on weekend for a hectic week ahead.Generally, stays long and tasty.It serves you as a go to breakfast or snack whenever you are hungry instead of eating junk.You can also make methi thepla for travel and eat while you await reaching your destination.I loved eating them during my train journeys.We travelled for 24+ hours and this helped us avoid market based oily food.If you do not have fresh methi leaves,you can also make kasuri methi thepla instead.
