Travel friendly snack item
We love travelling by road and the most important question a planner has to think about after the stay and the route details is travel food. Travel food should be easy to make and should retain the taste and freshness for at least a few hours. The dough of this Puri can be made ahead one night prior then just roll and fry before starting the journey.
Pack Methi Puri’s with pickles or sauce for a Picnic or serve it for Breakfast, it will be an instant hit.
Fenugreek leaves are enriched with minerals like Potassium, Calcium, and Iron. The leaves have good dietary fiber and are enriched with Vitamin C. For more intense taste, add soaked kasuri methi.
I relish it with Schezwan Chutney 😉
A very good Breakfast Dish.Pair it with Mango launji, yogurt or any pickle and it is oh so comforting.
Fenugreek has numerous health benefits and tastes good too.
