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!

I had a lot of fenugreek leaves at home, so when I came across this recipe and it was just so good, I made this on a sunday evening and served it to my family members with hot cup of tea and coffee and they enjoyed it a lot.

These are my favourite since my childhood days, they were always made on sundays for lunch as a farsan and they taste soo good. The combo of methi along with bananas is just wow
