Methi Thepla

Methi Thepla is the most popular  Gujarathi  breakfast dish. Made with fenugreek (methi), it is rich in proteins, fibre, iron and vitamin B6. 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.
