Gujarati Methi Theplas

A soft and tasty flatbread from the kitchens of Gujarat..It has a hint of spices and nutritious fenugreek leaves.Since fresh fenugreek leaves were not available,I used Kasuri Methi .I found many variations for this recipe and stuck to this one.


I used:

Whole wheat flour -3 cups
Kasuri Methi  -2 tablespoons[or fresh methi a small bunch]
Thick curd-1 cup
Chilli powder-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder- a large pinch
Coriander powder-1/2 a teaspoon
Sesame seeds-1 teaspoon
Salt to taste


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a lrge bowl.
  2. Put in  curd and mix well.
  3. Add water little by little and make a smooth dough .
  4. Let it rest for 15 minutes
  5. Knead again.If it too stikcy after 15 minutes add more flour and knead.
  6. Pinch out balls and roll out into chapthis using a little flour if needed
  7. Cook on a hot griddle till brown spots appear on both sides.
Serve with Yogurt / Mango Pickle or any side dish of your choice.

Could eat theplas anytime - don't even need a curry with them - just yogurt or pickle with a cup of chai!! Theplas are an all time favourite with us Gujaratis. So many variations of making theplas as well.
