Methi(Vendhaya) Poori

Methi poori is deep fried bread. Methi leaves provide additional nutrition to the plain puris. Plain Poori is one of the traditional breakfast dish. Instead of having a plain poori, if we mix some Methi leaves, they become more healthy. Methi leaves are very good for health and because of its bitter taste, our children won't like it to take it as a poriyal. So this is a slight variation of Plain poori with Methi leaves paste which will be liked by everyone in our family.
