Methi Thepla

Yet another variety of Indian flat bread from Gujarat.These are simple to make but delicious to munch.For travel or lunch box or snack, this bread will come handy.Since they are loaded with green leaves, they are healthy too.

These breads are rolled out thin to avoid air pocket formation . So these breads will not become stale quickly, hence they are travel friendly too.


Whole wheat flour        - 1 cup
Fenugreek leaves          - 1/2 cup( Roughly chopped)
Turmeric powder          - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder             - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli powder        - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida                   - 1/4 tsp
Yougurt                        - 2 tbsp
Water                          -  1/4 cup
Salt                             - to taste
Oil                               - 2 tbsp


In a wide bowl,add all the dry ingredients and incorporate them well.Add chopped methi/ fenugreek leaves and mix well.Then add yogurt and mix thoroughly.Now add water little at a time to make a hard dough.Apply little oil and cover it and let it rest for 15 minutes.

The methi leaves will ooze out little water when mixed with salt.So after resting time, the dough will be soft and pliable.

Divide the dough into equal sized balls. Dust and roll it into thin disks.
Heat a griddle in high heat and cook the thepla one side.Flip it and smear some oil on top.Do the same for the other side.

Enjoy with pickle and raita.
