Methi Thepla

Actually I was forced to prepare this Methi (Fenugreek leaves) Thepla as attempt to make a Methi Sabji was complete flop. Nooo it was not my fault, but Methi was little bitter for curry. I don’t mind Methi being little bitter, but was not possible for Pavan to digest 🙂 So used my skills  to convert that curry into something edible….hehe
