Methi Khakra

Yumm.....i just love methi Khakra...It is a favorite , terrific tea time  gujarati snack made from wheat flour & methi leaves. It is very versatile and can be eaten as snacks or you can also take it with evening Tea . It's very simple to make! So lets start the recipe...

2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup finely chopped fenugreek leaves or you can add the dried fenugreek leaves
1 tsp ajwain
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
2 tsp oil
Mix all the ingredients and knead by adding little water at a time, till it becomes stiff dough. Keep aside covered for 15 minutes.
Divide the dough into 15 portions and roll out each portion into very thin rounds with help of a little flour.
Heat the Tawa in medium high heat. Add one rolled out portion of the dough, add 1 teaspoon of oil and keep pressing  (The pressing can be done with a wooden press or a cotton cloth or something else in your kitchen that will work as a press) and turning it on the griddle not allowing it to puff.
Continue this pressing and turning for a few minutes. Turnover and continue the press and turn method on medium heat until the rounds become crisp. Now the crisp rounds called khakra’s are ready. Store in an air-tight jar.
