I couldnt settle down in one recipe for Methi thepla so referred here and there....the result was this healthy soft rotis! The theplas were very soft, with the spices added in it needs no side dish at all....Perfect for on the go snacky/breakfast. Many of you have asked so have updated it : The side dish I served is store bought onion pickle.
1.Chop the methi leaves roughly. Saute the methi leaves until it shrinks and reduces in volume.. Sauting the methi leaves avoids bitterness.In a bowl, add together wheat flour, salt, coriander powder, red chili powder, cumin seeds , curd, besan flour,oil, turmeric powder and required salt.
2.Add the sauted methi leaves to the above mixture. Add water little by little and combine them together to form a soft pilable dough.The dough should have the consistency similar to a roti dough.Cover and leave aside for 15-30 mins. Pinch lemon equal sized balls and roll them to form smooth balls.
- These rotis are very soft, they dont get spoiled soon so ideal for travel. It can be had as such or with any pickle.
- Sauting the methi leaves avoids bitterness in rotis. You can use buttermilk also instead of curd which makes the rotis even more softer.
