Methi Poori / Puri (using Kasuri Methi leaves / Dried Fenugreek Leaves)

Methi poori is a flavorful, crispy deep fried Indian bread, prepared using wheat flour and methi leaves along with spices.  In this recipe I have used dried fenugreek leaves / Kasuri methi; but you can also try this recipe using fresh fenugreek leaves too.

Now lets check the recipe for Methi poori!


Wheat flour - 2 cups + extra for dusting
Dried fenugreek leaves - 3 to 4 tbsp
Turmeric powder - ¼ tsp
Red chilli powder - ½ tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - for deep frying


Take a wide bowl; add wheat flour, dried fenugreek leaves, turmeric power, red chilli powder and salt.  Mix well.

Next add 2 or 3 tsp oil and water little by little; knead well to form a tight dough.

Divide the dough into lemon sized balls and flattened them using rolling pin; make into round shape as we do for normal poori.

Repeat with the remaining dough.

Heat the oil in a kadai and fry each poori on both sides till golden and crisp.

Serve hot with Channa masala, Potato masala or with any gravy.  


Adjust spice level according your taste.

You can also add cumin powder along with the other spice powders to add more flavour to the poori!
