Dish #418 - Methi Thepla - A Gujrati Breakfast delicacy - #sundaybreakfast

Here is a Gujarati delicacy often made by me using Fenugreek leaves also called Methi in Hindi!

Known as "thepla" is Gujrati, its easy to make and delicious.

Whole wheat flour - 150 gms
Bengal gram flour (Besan) - 100 gms
Fresh fenugreek leaves (methi leaves) - 1 cup chopped
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Curds (yoghurt/dahi) - 3/4 cup
Oil - 3 tsp
salt to taste
oil/ghee for cooking

Sieve the wheat flour and gram flour separately.
Combine the wheat flour, gram flour and the remaining ingredients in a bowl, mix well and knead into a soft dough.
Cover and keep aside for 20 minutes.
Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and roll out each portion into a circle of 5" diameter.
Heat a tava/flat pan and cook using little oil or ghee till golden brown spots appear on both the sides.
Serve hot with chhunda (sweet mango pickle) or with curds and any mango pickle.

We normally eat it with my favorite Punjabi Mango pickle.
