Methi Thepla

Methi Thepla

Gujrati cusine is vegetarian mainly & the staple includes kichidi, pickle & chaas. The dishes of Gujarat are very distinctive in taste. The well know & widley dishes include Dhokla, Khandvi & many more. Today I'm sharing one of the much known dish "Thepla" here.
Thepla/Dhebra is a roti or bread made of mixture flours, spices & veggies. This methi thepla roti I'm sharing is a mix of fenugreek leaves & spices. It is a healthy & easy dish you can enjoy regularly.

- Now divide the dough in to equal parts & form them into balls. 
- First dust the floor then take a dough ball & press it flat. 
- Dust it & using a rolling pin roll it flat & round in shape. 
- Repeat the same with rest of the balls. 
- Heat a pan. Spread little butter on the pan & place a roti on it. Brush some ghee on the upper side.
- Cook it for few seconds & flip it to other side. Now the roti is half done.
- Next xook on both sides till you see small brown spots. This means the roti is done & ready. 
- Repeat the same with rest of the roti's. 
- Serve them with a curry, pickle & yogurt.
- I use very less fat to cook roti's. You can still see some flour that I used while rolling.
