Methi (Fenugreek) Thepla

In my childhood days, my mom used to prepare methi thepla and use to give with jaggery and clarified butter (ghee). I still remember the taste of spicy and sweet thepla. I was craving for that taste and today the urge for it was at highest. So I decided to make this yummy methi na thepla.
It is good for kids who dont like to eat vegetable. You can mix any vegetable in dough and give them in form of thepla. Thats what my mom used to do for me.

2 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup lentil flour (besan)
1 cup barley flour
1 sp chopped chillies and ginger paste
1 cup chopped methi (fenugreek)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cumin seeds


For Dough:
Mix all above flour well.
To this add all above mentioned ingredients. Mix them well with flour.
Add 3 tsp oil to flour, mix it well (This is important for softness of thepla).
Knead the dough with water and keep covered for 30 mins. (dough should be like roti..not to soft nor too hard).

For Methi Thepla:
Make a small bowl of dough and rub in wheat flour.
Try to roll it with roller stick used to make rotis
Make round roti shaped thepla.
Heat the flat skillet on stove
Place thepla on this
Turn to other side when you see small boils on thepla.
Shallow fry both side with 1 tsp oil.
Remove thepla from pan and allow it to cool down.

Serve it with curd, pickle or masala.
