Theplee



B M # 5   Day 2
Theplees come from a Gujrati kitchen.These are mini steamed pancakes which are normally made with fresh fenugreek,but can also be made with dried one .If methi is not available you could put some ajwain (carom seeds).It takes a while to do the Theplees when you make them for the first time but once you get the hang of it …it’s actually quite quick.

1cup……….wheat flour
2tbsp………oil
1…………..green chilly finely chopped
¼ cup ……..methi
Pinch………turmeric pwd
Salt to taste

Wash and chop methi roughly.
Sprinkle salt and leave it for a few minutes.
Squeeze out the water.
Mix all the ingredients and bind into a semi soft dough.
Make tiny balls and flatten them pressing with fingers.
Steam.(5-7 mins)
Serve steaming hot with methia masala  and cooking oil.
(in a small bowl put methia masala pour cooking oil on it ). 


These are absolutely dry so the Gujjus dip these Theplees in this masala oil and relish!
Just like a sauce.
