What is a dhebra? A dhebra is a type of flatbread that is popular in Gujarat, India. It is made with a batter of flour, spices, and vegetables, and is often cooked on a tawa or griddle. Dhebras taste best with  green chutney.

To make methi na dhebra dough, in a bowl put methi leaves, bajra flour, jowar flour, besan, chilli powder, hing, curd, ginger-green chilli paste, garlic paste, sugar, salt and with 3 tsp of oil. Make a soft dough, using enough water.

Divide the dough into 20 equal portions. Pat a portion of the dough into a 50 mm. (2”) diameter and 1 cm thick circle in between your palms. Place 6 dough rounds on a hot tava (griddle). Cook these on a medium flame using ½ tsp of oil, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Serve methi na dhebra hot with  green chutney and   low fat curds.
