Wow, these look absolutely amazing. I just don’t know where I’ll find fenugreek leaves though :/ is there any substitute or is it a ridiculous question?
Methi thepla you need the fenugreek leaves. I dont think there is any substitute for it. You can check Indian stores. Or if you have time you can grow your own fenugreek leaves from fenugreek seeds which should be easily available in Indian stores

I used to make methi parantha with this method except 2 tbsp of curd. So thepla and methi parantha are kind of similar. Now will try this version of thepla. thanks for sharing.
Do try it Neha, and let us know how you liked it 😀
