Methi Thepla

Whenever I think of Cooking especially some simple dishes I don’t have any kind of fuss… and may be the reason is it takes only few minutes to get into it….
Whenever I get mails or requests from either anonymous people or even friends or may be FB friends telling me that they tried my dishes and it came out really yum…. I feel so fascinated…. And I keep repeating the same to Guru. And the talk starts like this..
A: U know I got a mail from so n so that she tried my dish and it came out super..
G:  yeh those r fool proof dishes na dear.
A: But still trying is gr8 nave and over that telling me is so sweet…
I end the talk and go back to my work after 10 minutes…
A: I m really fascinated U kno…
G: y???
A: I told u I got a mail…
G: oh tht one u told me once…. Y r u repeating
A: but still it feels gr8 nd I feel like telling it over and over..
And so goes my fascinating talks….
Sometimes when I get mails or my friends tell me about it I feel y not u guys comment in my blog instead of pinging me…. It would not take xtra time of urs….;). I kno this is kinda being selfish for comments…. ;).
I too peep out into blogs and comment heartily if I really liked the dish…
I have even told if I have tried them out…..

Ok now to today’s hot topic….
Rotis or Chapathis really don’t  electrify me as the rice items do…. There r selected varities which is almost done now and then in my house…. Now Methi thepla is added to the menu….
The first time I ate this was when my SIL made it.... and soon When I had seen it in Parita’s world I was wanting to try it…. And I did it the next week itself… But I cud get the clicks now….. I never made any changes in the ingredients but have tried a different method.

So here is the Recipe for Methi Thepla:
1 cup fresh fenugreek/Methi  leaves finely chopped
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour (Atta)
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander seeds powder
1 tsp cumin seeds powder
lemon sized ball of jaggery
Salt to taste
Water as required

Procedure:-
  • Heat a pan add oil, coriander powder, red chili powder, cumin powder and turmeric powder, fenugreek leaves, salt, jaggery, mix well  for  5 to 8 mins until jaggery has dissolved.(I did this to remove the bitterness of methi). Allow it to cool.
  • After 15 mins, add the whole wheat flour in this mixture and knead into a soft dough using water as required. The dough should have consistency similar to roti dough.
  • Make lemon sized balls and using a rolling pin roll them into circles.( I know mine haven't come in perfect circles I m still in learning process in tht matter).
  • Fry theplas until done on both sides(I did not add oil to it while frying).
  • Serve them With curd, pickle Or even Shrikand As I ate it with this and it tasted Super.
