Methi theplas are chapathi like breakfast recipe made from fenugreek leaves,whole wheat flour with some few spices.It is a healthy and most common breakfast from Gujarat that can also be served as snacks for kids.Adjust the spice level as per your need.The flavor from garlic and chopped fenugreek leaves enhances the taste of the thepla.
Methi theplas are perfect to carry for lunch boxes,snack boxes and during travelling time.This would be the best and easiest way to incorporate fenugreek leaves in our children’s diet .They taste great with raitha and pickles but I usually serve them mayonnaise,butter or just plain curd with some veg salad.Do make this healthy recipe for loved ones at home 🙂
