Methi Thepla-Wholewheat Flatbread With Fresh Fenugreek Leaves

This flatbread/roti is native to Gujarat.It is easy to prepare and healthy as it contains fresh fenugreek leaves(methi).This can also be packed into lunchboxes as well.Whenever I have a bunch of fresh methi leaves I prepare it without fail as my family loves it very much..This can also be served with any spicy curry which is not a must though.Accompanied with pickle and curd/yogurt makes it a complete food.
