  • Keep the kneaded dough aside for 5-10 minutes. So, that the dough gets more soft and fluffy.
  • Now knead the Methi Thepla dough for 5 more minutes.
  • Take small balls of dough, roll and flatten it into paratha as we do for chapati.
  • Now, place the rolled thepla or paratha on a medium hot tawa, for roasting
  • When oneside is partly cooked then turn the methi thepla to cook it from other side
  • Brush both sides with oil or ghee.
  • Finally, thepla is ready to serve hot with pickle.


• Knead the dough well and allow it to rest for 5-10 minutes. • If you want to make theplas for travelling and want to store it for 2-3 days. • Use little bit of extra oil while frying it. • You can also add ghee between 2theplas after frying so as it can stay soft. • Do not use dry flour more than 2 times while rolling the thepla
