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

I made a couple of changes to the recipe and it turned out lovely. I have used jaggery in place of sugar. I also added a tablespoon of makkai flour (not corn starch). This is a quick fix breakfast and wonderful especially in cold and rainy weather.

This one is a healthier option but Tarlaji is right that the fried version tastes better. These dhebras are a little dry..
