Crisp and flavour-packed whole wheat flour dapkas with the mild sweetness of bananas and the perky taste of fenugreek leaves.
This unique combination of bananas and methi makes this Methi Kela Dapka a truly memorable treat. Other ingredients like green chillies and ginger add to the spicy side of this popular Gujarati snack, giving it a really rich flavour.
One thing you need to remember is that the Methi Kela Dapka tastes best when it is served immediately. You will not relish it after it gets cold. So, serve it hot and fresh with a cup of steaming hot tea!
