Methi Poori is a crunchy poori , made with wheat flour , spices and dry fenugreek . The sesame seeds give it a super crunch .
The third week of September Mega Marathon and we are posting Sweets and Snacks . For this week I have chosen Diwali Snacks which are popular in Gujrat . Gujrati’s are really really good with their farsan skills . They make these nashtas throughout the year , some of them make excellent lunch box snacks too . Methi Poori is one such snack .
The Methi Poori is made with whole wheat flour , sesame seeds , dry fenugreek leaves or Kasoori methi and are generously spiced with red chilly and turmeric . The pooris after frying golden turn into a crispy , crunchy and spicy munch . These are best served with tea or coffee . These spicy pooris can be moderately spiced or for that matter you can completely skip the chillies when making for kids .
Methi Pooris is one naashta which is almost a must during the festival season . A few pooris along with some Tikha Ganthia and a cup of Elaichi wali Chai and your soul is satisfied, for people who do not have tea, enjoy the pooris with a pickle and a nice lemony drink

Methi Poori looks very crispy and inviting. The whole setup looks awesome Vaishali. Must take inspiration from your composition.
Thanks for the recipe. I am going to make these crisp pooris for my daughter. BTW the setup looks pretty as Valli mentioned, especially that cherry drink (?).
Methi poori looks nice and crisp. Amazing pics Vaishali.
Crispy Methi pooris look sinful Vaishali. If we bake them, can munch on them guilt free. Love the recipe, will try it soon.
Wow! I was just drooling over the pictures and must say they are definitely addictive.
