Methi Poori / Puri, Methi leaves mixed with besan and whole wheat flour and deep fry them in oil as we do for conventional poori. We can prepare these poori like conventional poori also just with wheat flour. I like adding besan with wheat flour it gives a wonderful taste to the poori. These besan added methi poori won't puff up like our usual pooris but taste wise they are so good. Methi leaves are nutritional rich and this is one way we could include these healthy greens in our diet. I love to make these Methi Poori especially on sundays when everyone in our family sits together for a breakfast! My daughters love to have this poori along with potato subji. Lets see how to make this Methi Puri.
