In a bowl, take 1 cup roti atta
Add 1/2 tsp Haldi powder
Add a pinch of asafoetida - this is optional
Add 1 tsp red chilli powder
Add a pinch of ajwain
Add salt per taste
Add half a cup of chopped methi
Add a spoon of curd and mix with hands
Add little water as you bind atta
Add a spoon of oil while mixing
As atta starts leaving bowl and makes round bound form, it means atta is ready
#FoodTip : Methi or Palak atta shouldn't be left for more than 5 minutes as methi tends to lose water and will make atta very soft
Now make small roundels
Use a roller pin and roll them, thepla should be thicker than chapati but not as thick as paratha
Heat up a tawa
and cook on both sides, once you see it's half cooked, apply 1 tsp oil on both sides
Thepla will be ready in another 3-4 minutes.
Serve methi thepla with curd, chilli, pickle or chutney or chunda.
