About This Recipe

This Dahi Methi Poori is an interesting twist to your regular poori with an addition of fresh fenugreek leaves, curd and spices. It can be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

In case you do not get fresh fenugreek leaves, you can use kasuri methi (dry fenugreek leaves) instead.

At home we love to pair these methi flavoured pooris with luscious Mathura ke Dubki Wale Aloo, but they also taste great with chole, or even as an evening snack with masala tea. It is one of my favourite Indian breads to include in festive meals during winters.

Ingredients

Flour – It is prepared with whole wheat flour! To make it crispy, you can also add a little amount of sooji/semolina.

Fenugreek Leaves – Add in fresh and green fenugreek leaves/methi, which are available in abundance during winters. You can also add in other greens such as spinach or kale, if fenugreek is not available.

Curd – Curd makes the pooris soft, so do not miss it.

Oil – Vegetable oil works great for deep frying.

Others – Salt, ajwain (carom seeds) and red chilli powder are a few other ingredients that will enhance the flavour of pooris.

Fenugreek Health Benefits

Fenugreek is one of the green leafy vegetables that is said to be a storehouse of minerals and is extremely rich in Iron.

It is also a great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K, that builds immune system which helps in fighting common illness.

Fenugreek is considered good for diabetic people, as it contains fibre which is known to slow down the digestion process and absorb body’s carbohydrates and sugar.

It is low in calorie, making it perfect for your weight loss diet.

Fenugreek is said be really good for bone health. It prevents anemia and also cures mouth ulcers.

Great for new mothers, as it stimulates breast milk production.

Storage Suggestions

Pooris taste the best when they are served right out of the pan – hot and crispy. But they also make a great travel food, which easily lasts for 1 to 2 days at room temperature.

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 3 to 4 days, covered in a foil or in an air tight container. Reheat it in microwave until warm.

Serving Suggestions

Dahi Methi Poori and Dubki Wale Aloo is a bomb combination! You can also serve it with Amritsari Chole, Dum Aloo, Punjabi Lobia Masala Curry, Aloo Matar or ay other curry that your prefer.

These crispy pooris also taste great as an evening snack with some pickle on the side and a hot cup of masala tea or coffee.

It can also be packed in office/school lunch box with Achari Aloo or Punjabi Jeera Aloo.

Combined with the goodness of fresh methi leaves, ajwain, curd and basic spices, Dahi Methi Poori turns out as a clear winner during any meal.
