Methi Theplas

Theplas are Gujrathi flat bread which tastes best with just yoghurt and pickle.The methi leaves add a zing and freshness to the theplas.I took this recipe from Sia's Monsoon spice.It takes very less time to prepare.Here goes the recipe.

Ingredients

Whole wheat flour/atta - 2 cups
Gram flour/Besan - 1/4 cup
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Methi leaves - 1/2 cup packed
Cumin/Jeear powder - 1 teaspoon
Chilli powder - 1 teaspon
Oil - 1 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Warm water for kneading

Directions

Remove the methi leaves from the stem and wash them thoroughly..Chop them finely.

Mix in all the ingredients along with the required amount of warm water and knead together to form a dough.Cover and keep it aside for about half an hour.Knead the dough again and make lime sized balls.Dust the surface with flour and roll each ball into a circle with the help of a rolling pin..

Heat a griddle and cook the thepla on both sides for about 2 minutes till brown spots start appearing..Top with a spoon of ghee if you like.

Serve hot with yoghurt and pickle..
