Dhebra is an Indian bread from Gujarati cuisine made of pearl millet flour, jowar flour and wheat flour. When we add the flavor of methi leaves then it’s called methi nu dhebra. You can serve dhebra recipe with tamatar nu shaak, mango or chili pickle and garlic chutney.
Dhebra is an iron and fiber rich snack which you can consume as snack or main course with curries. You can prepare dhebra with two techniques tawa cooking or deep fried cooking. I prefer deep fried version tastes even better than paratha style.

bajra and jowar with methi is both nutritious and delicious! Who can refuse such beautiful dhebra! Fabulous!!
Same pinch ! Methi na Dhebras look fantastic . The Jowar flour in Dhebras is new to me . Here they normally use a bit of besan , but I guess everyone has their own recipe .
Methi nu dhebra, makes me drool. This mulitgrain flour mix sounds too good to make dhebras like this. Feel like grabbing have some rite now. irresistible they are.
I made the tawa fried version and loved it. Your version of using different flours and deep frying them sounds fabulous. The dhebra look so yum Preeti.
My old neighbor was a Gujarati lady who taught me debra with jowar flour and methi. This looks so yumm.
Lovely Methi Nu Dhebra, would love to have some with tea
Preeti your dhebras look so different from what Gujaratis make. Looks yummy. You may want to edit the title as the word nu is usually used for a singular word and na is for plural. So it should read methi na dhebra.
I am learning so much from this flatbread marathon. I love both this deep fried and the pan fried methi dhebra recipes. Such a healthy one as well with all the whole grain flours.
Deep frying these have surely made them look so sinful, fantastic way of including the methis and making this so interesting!
You are right Preeti that fried version always tastes better than paratha and can make a perfect Sunday brunch
you rocked this methi nu dhebra recipe Priti, looking so tempting and m feeling like grabbing them from screen.
Such a fantastic and nutritious recipe Preeti. This would definitely be a favorite with the kids.
