Methi Puri

I am a total fan of methi and keep finding ways to incorporate it into my daily cooking. This Saturday on my family’s popular demand for puris, I thought what could be a better way to enjoy methi .The puris were so mouth watering that my almost 4yr old daughter had three of them and still wanted more. It can be prepared with fresh methi leaves but since it was on the spur of the moment, I substituted it with kasoori methi .I prepared extra ones and kept them in a hot tiffin box so as to enjoy them as a snack with our evening tea.
