Fenugreek Flatbreads Methi na Thepla
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
This takes me about 25minutes to do as I cook and roll in tandem. If you are starting off roll them all out then cook them. This will increase your cook time but it does get easier. These freeze well and are great to have with any meal or even on their own with a nice cup of masala chai. Enjoy!
