methi khakhra | whole wheat methi khakhra | gujarati methi khakhra | fenugreek flat bread. Khakhra are popular Gujarati dry snacks. They are thin, crispy and generally healthy as they are roasted on the tava without the use of fat or just minimal fat. The khakhra dough can be made with a myriad of flour, leafy greens, spices and condiments. You can make them in quantity and stored in a container. Also, they stay fresh for a long time and can be carried along. Infact, they are a perfect travel food too. Below are some of my personal favorite khakhra recipes :
For making the dough of Methi Khakhra, take a bunch of methi leaves and clean it. Pick the fresh leaves and place it on a sieve.
Rinse the fenugreek leaves under water.
Place on a clean muslin cloth or paper towel and dry them.
Transfer the methi leaves to a chopping board. Chop the methi leaves, measure ¾ cups and keep aside.
Take whole wheat flour in a deep bowl. You can even make use of a combination of flour like jowar, bajra, nachni etc.
Add the chopped methi leaves to it.
Next, add the sesame seeds for a pleasant crunch.
Add turmeric powder.
Add chilli powder. You can aditionally put chaat masala, ginger-garlic paste, cumin powder to enhance the taste of Methi Khakhra.
Add salt to taste.
Lastly, add 2 tsp oil. It helps in making the Whole Wheat Khakhra dough pliable.
Gradually add water to form a dough. We have added around 1/2 cup of water.

Continue cooking the gujarati methi khakhra on a slow flame, while pressing with a khakhra press or a folded muslin cloth, till it turns crisp and golden brown spots appear on both sides.
