Methi thepla is also known as methi paratha. Methi thepla is a popular Gujarati flat bread recipe. This flat bread is made up with fenugreek leaves. These methi thepla got a natural green color because of fenugreek leaves. They looks so beautiful as well as good in taste.

Methi thepla can be served with plain yogurt or pickle. I liked to eat methi thepla along with sweet curd and mung dal. You can serve it as it is with ghee on top.
