Methi na Thepla

I remember the dialog from the movie '3idiots', " Ye Gujrathi dishes ke naam itne ajib kyo hote hain , 'Fafda', 'debra', 'Handvo','thepla'…bla bla….". But boss Gujju food is Gujju food. I just love it. Most favorite and frequently prepare in my house is "Methi na thepla' . There are other varieties also like palak, dudhi. But I like methi one the most. Somebody who don't know, I want to tell something that is Methi paratha tastes different than thepla. It has it's own Gujju taste.


Fenugreek (Methi) leaves - 1 cup (heaped)

Whole wheat flour - 2 cups

Red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon

Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Coriander Powder - 1 teaspoon

Cumin Powder - 1 teaspoon

Curd - 1/2 cup

Powdered sugar - 1 teaspoon

Oil - 2-3 tablespoon

Salt to taste.

Clean and wash methi leaves. Chopped finely. Now mix all ingredients except oil. Make a soft dough with little oil. Add little water if require. Keep aside for 15 minutes. Now make lemon size balls. Then roll each ball like roti. Cook each thepla from both the side on griddle(Tava) on slow flame. Put some oil and make thepla little crisp. Serve hot with curd or Mango chunda or with any pickle.

This goes to, Simply food's "Flavours of Gujarat" Event.
