    Thats it.. Healthy methi wheat dumplings are ready to serve ..relish it hot hot !!Healthy Cooking !! Agree diet food need no longer be boring....

NOTE:

  1. Don't make the wheat coins too big n thick.They l not taste good.Also too thin will make it bit hard.
  2. If using fresh methi leaves, use only leaves. Discard stem .In case fresh methi leaves are not available you can use dry methi / kasoori methi too.they taste equally good.
  3. Instead of methi leaves you can use dill leaves (sabsige soppu) / drumsticks leaves .
  4. While seasoning you can also add chopped garlic / hing / white til for additional flavour.
