Methi Thepla (Fenugreek Leaves Thepla)

Methi Thepla (Fenugreek Leaves Thepla), is a variation to the basic thepla, made by almost most of the Gujarati's. Methi i.e., fenugreek leaves is added to the basic thepla recipe. Whenever Fenugreek leaves are available, we make this thepla for breakfast or Dinner. Fenugreek leaves are good for health, so this way too this also becomes a healthy thepla.
{In my precious post, I have posted the basic thepla recipe}


Flour 2 Cups
Fenugreek leaves (Methi), washed and chopped 1/2 cup
Green chili paste 1/2 tsp optional.
Salt as per taste
Turmeric Powder 1/2 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1/2  to 1 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp + Oil for cooking thepla

In a bowl add 2 cups flour,fenugreek leaves (methi),green chili paste (optional), salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder, oil and knead with water and make a dough. The dough should not be too hard nor too soft. Cover it and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

After 10 mins, once again knead the dough and divide into equal portions(balls) and flatten it with your palms. 

Dust some flour on the rolling board and start rolling the thepla into a fine circle achieved.

Heat the tawa, place the thepla, and allow it to cook till small bubbles are seen and flip it other side. Add oil( 1/2 tbsp) and cook till small bubbles and again flip it to the first side and again add oil(1/2 tbsp) , and cook till the thepla is lightly brown both sides.{Cook on high flame as it will turn out soft}

Serve hot with Mango pickle and Curd.
Green chili paste is totally optional. We usually have this paste stored in fridge. So I have added.
