Methi Paneer Theplas are methi theplas with the goodness of paneer

Methi thepla is an all time favourite in my house. When I am too lazy to cook, I make methi theplas and serve it with curds and pickles. My kids just love methi theplas and so they have it without creating any fuss. Today, I had some  paneer in the refrigerator. So, I thought of adding paneer to my methi theplas. 

Its an easy dish packed with all the components of a balanced diet…… carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals and fats. Heres the recipe.
