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.
