METHI THEPLA RECIPE

    I have already posted Methi Paratha recipe here but this methi thepla i learnt from my friend and i am big of this and after tasting this twice at her place, you know what i told. If you say i asked for the recipe, no- I told her whenever you make this methi thepla you give the dough for me also to make 4 rotis.Open-mouthed smileOpen-mouthed smile. Till date i didn’t try the dough on my own,(as she send me dough every week) even for this recipe too i called her home and asked her to make for me. We had a good chatting session while making this methi thepla. Thanks anitha for the wonderful recipe and making the theplas for me.
These theplas if handled in a proper way, like without touching with wet hands and not packing when it is too hot, is best suitable for travels too. So if you are planning for a summer vacation trip, you can prepare this and pack for your trip. This can stay for 2 days.

  22. actually Gujarati methi theplas contain jaggery too. you can cut and add while making dough for theplas. Sesame seeds can also be added, gives them beautiful look.

  23. Yes correctly said thepla's are great snacks to have while travelling. I made thepla adding methi, dudhi and mulli (white radish). Yes sesame seeds can also be a good option.
    I have never tried mint leaves in thepla. Will try for sure soon.
