Fenugreek Roti – Thepala

A tasty treat for travel!

Talking about travel season, Fenugreek Roti (Thepala) makes the perfect on the go snack. Made with whole wheat flour (best consumed during the winter season), spices and fried in sesame oil. Roti stay fresh for 5-10 days and are delicious on their own or paired with our Peanut Travel Chutney when you are on the go.

An easy to digest snack that makes you feel good. Perfect!

Due to the heaviness of the wheat flour, Roti makes you feel easily satiated without over burdening the digestive system. This makes for an easy snack to support the minimum needs during travel or on a busy day. Stay tuned for our Ayurvedic Travel Tips to understand how to effectively consume foods while traveling, preparing yourself pre- and post- travel to feel good for the days to come.

Fenugreek Roti for the Holiday Table

No doubt Roti are delicious and look beautiful!  Make a batch to bring to your next family dinner along with our Peanut Travel Chutney or Savory Tomato Chutney. They pair beautifully and look delightful on the table. Enjoy!
