Dhebra recipe is a Gujarati recipe, kind of just another form of Gujarati Thepla recipe. Dhebra is generally made up from bajra flour (bajre ka aata), wheat flour and veggies like methi, palak, lauki etc., while thepla recipe is prepared from wheat flour.

This Dhebra recipe which I am going to show you, is a Bajra Methi Dhebra recipe. As the recipe name suggests, this Debra is made up from bajra (or millet flour) and methi (or fenugreek leaves) with blend of few other ingredients which makes this Methi Dhebra or Methi Bajra Dhebra brilliant.

Bajra Methi Dhebra

There are some foods which are generally consumed during winter season as they are warm in nature – bajra and dates are few of them. Gond laddu is also a member of the winter food family. I will share recipe of Gond Laddu as well sometime soon.

We can prepare different recipes using bajra like bajra roti, bajra cheela, cutlets, bajra dhebra and many more. So, here we are with Methi Bajra Dhebra recipe which is really a good choice to include Bajra or Millet in our meals during winter.

I am not revealing all other ingredients here yet but we will see them with detailed Bajra Dhebra recipe quickly. However, before we check the complete recipe, just small tips from me are that – I have used little bit of jaggery for this Dhebra recipe which is must I would say after research and few trials of the recipe. Don’t worry Dhebra is not sweet recipe, adding jaggery enhances the taste of Dhebra recipe. Another very important note is don’t use sour curd (khatta dahi). It makes Dhebra sour and it won’t be tasty.

This Methi Dhebra or Bajra Dhebra tastes amazing and if you try it once I am sure you will love this recipe and will become a fan of this recipe, the way I have become.

Combination of bajra and methi makes this Bajra Methi Dhebra very tasty and nutritious. Serve Dhebra with some curd, pickle or chutney of your choice. I have served this Methi Dhebra with curd and home made amla pickle. We can also use fresh home made makkhan along with Dhebra for best combination.

If you like the recipe, please share with your friends and leave your feedbacks. I would be glad to hear from you 😊 .

Cooking method for Bajra Methi Dhebra Recipe

  1. Rinse fenugreek leaves, coriander, chilli, ginger and garlic.

  2. Finely chop fenugreek leaves and coriander.

    Just grinding 1 tablespoon ginger, garlic, chilli won't be a good idea. You can grind more and refrigerate it and use later whenever needed in other recipes. Also, you can add little salt, lemon juice and some tadka to the crushed chilli, garlic paste and serve as spicy side chutney, if you like raw chilies.
