furthermore, some easy tips, recommendations and variations while preparing methi puri recipe. firstly, i have used wheat flour as the base for this recipe, and have given the healthy twist to this recipe. but it is also prepared with maida or plain flour which offers more flavour and taste. secondly, i have used fresh green methi leaves or fenugreek leaves which can be easily replaced with the frozen one / kasuri methi. use the frozen only if you do not have access to fresh one. lastly, deep fry these puris in a low flame in small batches. the puri turns crisp and evenly cooked in a low flame. moreover, you can also shape these as diamond biscuits which eventually reduces your frying time.
