Methi Thepla

It was so much fun to watch Shriya as Cinderella this Halloween. We have been loyal to Disney the last couple of times with her being a Minnie Mouse last year.I will hate to get to those years when she will no longer want to dress up and I can no longer shop for these fancy costumes.Oh well! We will cross the bridge when we get there...
Fall is my favorite season and you would have heard me say this a lot of times in my posts. It is a very pleasant season with vibrant colors. It is almost like Nature puts on a show every year. But sadly, this year the leaves have withered away even before we realized it was Fall. Not to mention the unusual snow at this time of the year. We were with out power for a couple of days and that is the longest we have ever been with out power. It in fact did seem like a spooky Halloween weekend!!
Methi Thepla is a type of bread similar to roti, but it has lot more flavors than the regular roti.This can be served for lunch, dinner or breakfast. This can accompanied with yogurt or pickle but I like to eat it as is!!

1 cup Wheat flour/Atta
1/2 cup Methi leaves, stems separated and discarded and leaves chopped
1 tbsp Kasuri Methi
1/4 -1/2 cup buttermilk; Add more if needed
1 tbsp oil
Pinch of Turmeric
Salt to taste
  • Combine Wheat flour, salt, Methi leaves, kasuri methi, turmeric
  • Adding the buttermilk slowly,begin to knead until the dough is elastic
  • Add the oil and continue kneading until it becomes soft
  • Cover the dough using a moist paper towel and keep it aside for half hour
  • Divide the dough into balls of equal sizes
  • Using a rolling pin, roll out into thin circles similar to rotis of about 6" in diameter
  • Heat a tawa and apply a 1/4 tsp of oil
  • Place one thepla and cook on both sides for a couple of min
  • Roll it and serve hot with pickle if desired
