Multigrain thepla (multigrain roti) recipe – Healthy breakfast recipe

Multigrain thepla is a healthy and very nutritious breakfast dish prepared from wheat flour, ragi flour, bajra flour, jowar flour and besan and mixed with fenugreek leaves and mild spices.  It is an ideal food or snack to start the day energetically.  Methi thepla is a favourite Gujarati roti. You can use fresh fenugreek leaves to make this roti.  But if fenugreek leaves are not available, you can substitute with dry kasoori methi leaves.  I have prepared the thepla using dry kasoori methi leaves as I wanted to try thepla using kasoori methi leaves too.  It tastes good and delicious even with kasoori methi.  Multigrain thepla goes well with curd or pickle or garlic chutney.  Do try this multigrain thepla to get the benefits of  high fibre and more nutrition.
