Methi Ka Thepla | Methi Thepla | Gujurati Methi Na Thepla ~ Travel Recipes

Gujarati Methi N athepla recipes

Methi ka thepla is a gujarati bread which is considered as a perfect mess free travel food. They are made with whole wheat flour, fenugreek leaves and some masala's. They are perfect as a meal any time in day, and this is my family fav. Theplas are different from  what we call parathas , theplas are generally thinner than parathas. In theplas generally there is a addition of yogurt which makes the thepla softer, here i have added lemon juice to make it vegan but yogurt can be added instead. This is ofcourse a healthy dish but also quick to make if methi leaves are cleaned up. You don't want a fancy/ rich side dish to indulge just a spoon of pickle will do. This is also had as a snack during tea time , this thepla can be made in lot of variation like adding lauki or veggies to it.  Now moving on to the recipe...
