Methi Thepla | Gujarati Methi Thepla Recipe

Methi Thepla is popular Gujarati flat bread or paratha made mostly for breakfast. Methi thepla is one of those paratha we can have it as breakfast, lunch, dinner, lunch box and it's perfect for travelling as thepla stays good for 2-3 days if handle properly and it goes well with just a pickle makes it more interesting for travelling or to have as quick breakfast or dinner. Methi thepla is one of the favorite recipe and it used to regular tiffin box during our school days.

These theplas are also good way to include fresh methi leaves in our diet and specially to make kids eat methi leaves. We can also have it as snack during tea time and personally I love to dip any paratha in tea and eat then to have it curd or pickle :) this is from childhood and continue to have same habit. If you don't have methi then just make it as plain thepla which I have already posted, or you can also add grated dudhi/luaki  to make dudhi/bottlegourd thepla another great thepla variety.


Theplas are good lunch box recipe and it's stay soft for long time and taste remains same too. For kids you can apply some jam, nutella and roll thepla for them to eat it in easy way. If you haven't tried thepla yet then it's time you should give a try too.
