Methi thepla is a Gujarati flatbread. The recipe for this dish varies from household to household. Some people make theirs from a mixture of flour, such as gram flour, millet flour, or whole wheat flour. This recipe features methi thepla with wheat flour, gram flour (besan), fenugreek leaves, and other spices. You can also include other greens like amaranth, or spinach in the dough.
Fenugreek leaves enhance liver functioning, dyspepsia and help treat gastric problems and other intestinal issues. Fenugreek leaves and seeds are also used for curing dysentery and diarrhea and help reduce menstrual cramps.
