Methi roti/thepla

This is also one of the recipes,that I got from my friend Sangeeta and tried.It tasted great. This is the first time I am trying and I liked it very much. I love the taste and this methi roti or methi thepla and will often make appearance in the kitchen. It comes out really soft and stays soft even after long time. So perfect to pack for your lunch box and boondi raita is the perfect side dish for methi roti. You can indulge without counting the numbers!

Notes

  • Adding oil and buttermilk adds extra softness to the rotis.
  • Sautéing the methi leaves enhances the flavor and cut down the bitterness of the leaves.
  • Stays soft for longer time and also doesn't gets spoiled soon,so ideal for travelling.
  • Rolling as thin as possible makes it very perfect!

Serve with any simple raitha or simply with curd and pickle.I served with boondi raita and mango thokku! Tasted great!
