Methi Thepla is a very healthy and sumptuous breakfast. Very easy to carry while travelling and is also a good lunch box item. As greens are loaded with many nutrients, the use of it in any manner is very beneficial to our health. Methi (fenugreek) can also be substituted with spinach, coriander leaves or mint leaves.
