Methi Thepla

Methi Thepla is a traditional Gujarati flatbread made with fresh fenugreek leaves (methi), whole wheat flour, and a blend of aromatic spices. This versatile dish is popular as a breakfast item, a snack, or even as a travel-friendly meal.

To prepare Methi Thepla, fresh fenugreek leaves are finely chopped and mixed with whole wheat flour (atta) along with other ingredients to form a smooth dough. The dough is seasoned with a combination of spices such as turmeric, red chili powder, cumin seeds, coriander powder, and sometimes ajwain (carom seeds) for added flavor.

Yogurt and a bit of oil are added to the dough to enhance its texture and softness. The dough is then kneaded well and divided into small portions, which are rolled out into thin, round discs using a rolling pin.

The rolled Methi Thepla is cooked on a hot griddle (tawa) with a little bit of oil or ghee until both sides are golden brown and crispy. The use of fenugreek leaves adds a unique bitterness and earthy flavor to the thepla, which pairs beautifully with the spices.

Methi Thepla is often enjoyed with a side of plain yogurt, pickles, or green chutney. It can also be packed for picnics or travels as it stays soft and flavorful even at room temperature.
