  • Take out fenugreek leaves and discard the stem.Clean well,chop them finely and keep aside.
  • Heat 1 tsp oil in a fry pan and add the chopped fenugreek leaves.Fry for a minute till it just shrinks down.Transfer to a mixing bowl and add yogurt,salt and all the powders.Mix well.Add the wheat flour and gram flour and prepare a dough using water similar to chapathi dough.
  • Grease with remaining oil ,cover and rest for 30 mins to 1 hour.
  • Take golf ball sized balls from the dough and roll to chapathi of medium thickness.
  • Heat a griddle and cook the methi thepla on both sides using little oil till golden brown sides appear on both sides.

  • Frying the fenugreek leaves before adding to the flour is optional.You can ddirectly add it to the flour and proceed.
