Typical Bollywood pairs that go together like SRK and Kajol, some dishes go together. This makes a Kamaal Kombination ( combination)!!

Such is the e.g of Methi Dhebra and Sukhi Bhaji(Fenugreek leaves Paratha and dry potatoes).  This sort of K2 dishes are always a hit with my family members...I make them in a typical Gujarati Kathiywadi style. Ingredients include multi-grain flours, Yogurt and sugar, using yoghurt keeps the dhebras shelf life for longer...great for taking on holidays or picnic.

So, let's see how I make Kathiyawadi Methi Dhebra? In Kathiyawadi food, garlic, onion and oil are heavily used and along with the garlic and onion sugar or jaggery is added too. In Kathiawar Methi Dhebra or thepla made with garlic and sugar.
