Methi Thepla

Published under: Roti
A traditional Gujarati dish served as a breakfast dish or evening snack with curd and pickles.

Methi Thepla is the most popular Gujarati breakfast dish. Made with fenugreek leaves (methi leaves), it is rich in proteins, fibre, iron and vitamin B6. Methi leaves are mixed with wheat flour and spices, kneaded, rolled out and cooked like a roti.  It is ideal as a breakfast dish, midday snack or as a side dish with the main course.

Thepla is best served with curd, mint chutney and choice of pickles. Theplas can also be made into small rolls for kids with different kinds of fillings.

The best part about methi thepla is it stays good for few days, so it can be made in advance and consumed throughout the week. Often served with a pickle, they are a great snack and also ideal for long journeys as they stay good for several days.
