Meethi Thepla is very famouse Gujarati snack bread. It is very flavorful and makes for a great travel or picnic food. You can serve with Pickle or with plain yogurt. Actually I love most of Gujarati snacks like Dhokla, Thepla, Khahkra and the most favourite of mine is Fafda, I simple love this snacks and can munch any time of the day.. I usually prepare thepla very often for the breakfast, because it is very healthy and easy to cook and easy to eat for the people like my hubby, who is always in a hurry..
You can make them in a bulk and store them for 4 to 5 days and they will taste same... There are many different version to cook, but I follow one very simple recipe sometime I do change ingredients but most of the time it is simple. Do try this recipe and serve healthy food to your loved ones..

Add oil and curd and rub and mix the flour nicely. Now add methi leaves, with little water and knead till the dough is smooth and soft.
Grease your hands and knead it again until it gets the elastic texture. cover it and leave it for 10-15 mins.
Make medium size balls of the dough and roll it to a disc of 6'' in diameter by dusting it in between with the dry flour.
Heat a tawa and place the rolled thepla on the tawa and let it cook slightly on one side. Turn it to the other side and apply oil and then turn it again and apply oi and let it roast on both sides till it forms the brown spots.
