Methi Dhebra Recipe | Gujarati Methi Na Dhebra

Methi na dhebra is a gujarati snack dish.i tasted this during my recent alibag moms friend bhabhi had got it for me and i coudnt just resist myself.

An iron and fibre-rich snack made with fenugreek leaves and bajra flour, methi na dhebra is so scrumptious that the plate will be empty in no time—so, take my advice and make more than you think is needed! served with curds, this makes an ideal afternoon snack.

 i must admit that the deep-fried version tastes even better, so forget the health-watch slogans once in a while and indulge!
