Methi thepla is a healthy Gujarati flatbread made using whole wheat flour, gram flour and of course fresh fenugreek leaves. Methi thepla is a variation to the methi paratha commonly made in North India. It can be served for breakfast or light lunch.Thepla can be served with curd or a cup of tea. However, because of the sharpness of methi that it carries, it tastes best with some sweet pickle such as chhunda.
Methi recipe: fresh fenugreek leaves i.e. methi should be included in the diet for its health benefits. Thepla is an easy way of doing that.
