Yummy and Easy Recipe for Methi Thepla


Methi or fenugreek is a highly underrated herb in the Indian kitchen. Popularly used to enhance the taste of a dish as kasuri methi, these leaves contain flavour and nutrition. This methi thepla recipe is one of the most popular uses of this ingredient.

The use of the right leaves is, however, very essential in making a healthy methi thepla recipe. Your best choice is the organically sourced and produced methi. Green-leafy vegetables remain infested by pests and insects, and the use of organic products will ensure that that dire situation never reaches your home.

Fenugreek is also an excellent way to control digestion. Research shows that methi, like in the form of this methi thepla recipe, can help slow down the absorption of sugar in the body and help in the stimulation of insulin. This quality makes it an ideal choice for people with diabetes.


Here are a few basic facts about this methi thepla recipe:

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 3-4 people
Cusine: Gujarati
Vessels needed: Mixing bowl, cast-iron or non-stick pan, ladle.


The incidents play a vital role in creating a quality tasting methi thepla. The dish would taste slightly sour if you fail to use organic sources or naturally stored ingredients. An organically grown leaf is also free of pesticides and additives and very rich in anti-oxidants.

Here is all you need to make this perfect methi thepla recipe:

  • Methi leaves: 1 cup
  • Curd: ½ cup
  • Wheat flour (atta): 2 cups
  • Gram flour (besan): ¼ cup
  • Kashmiri red chilli powder: ½ tsp
  • Turmeric (haldi): ¼ tsp
  • Carom seeds (ajwain): ½ tsp
  • Green chilli –  1
  • Ginger pod
  • Salt to taste
  • Cooking oil

Directions for methi thepla recipe:

  1. Use a large mixing bowl with a wide mouth and firm base.
  2. Add the atta and the besan and gently mix them, so they combine.
  3. To this mixture, add chilli powder, turmeric powder, cardamom seeds, and salt to taste.
  4. Mix the ingredients gently.
  5. Now add one finely chopped green chilli; we will also grate some ginger in this methi thepla recipe.
  6. Add the curd and start to mix them to form a dough. The consistency of the dough must be similar to that of any other chapati or roti.
  7. Add some water to this mixture when needed to keep it free of lumps and from sticking.
  8. Once you achieve a smooth texture, glaze the dough with some oil and knead it for a few more minutes so the oil can combine.
  9. Cover the mixing bowl with a damp cloth and keep aside for a few minutes. The more the batter rises, the softer the outcome of this methi thepla recipe.
  10. Roll this dough into small balls and then flatten them using a rolling pin into chapatis.
  11. You can also dust some wheat flour on them to avoid it from sticking to the surface.
  12. Heat a cast-iron pan or non-stick pan and add a small drizzle of organic oil to it.
  13. Cook the methi thepla on both sides until you notice small dark spots.
  14. Use as oil or organic ghee when needed to cook evenly.
  15. Repeat the same cooking process till all the dough finishes.

Cooking tips:

  • You can avoid the chilli and ginger from this methi thepla recipe if you wish. You can also add finely minced garlic for added flavour and taste.
  • Ensure the dough is soft and free from cracks. If not, the methi thepla would taste rough and uncooked.
  • If you knead the dough with just hung-curd and use no water, it will remain fresh for a longer time.


  • This methi thepla recipe is a perfect choice for dinner, breakfast, or an evening snack.
  • If cooked with organic ingredients, the thepla would serve as both a filling and nutritious meal.
  • For a perfect combination, serve this with a raita of your choice or spicy pickles. A chilli pickle or mango pickle is the ideal accompaniment for this thepla.
