Methi helps in the production of breast milk and should therefore be consumed during your time of lactation. Minimal usage of oil makes this recipe enjoyable to eat without the guilt of indulging in the original fried version of puris. These baked puris moreover provide for iron and calcium in your diet.
These also make a great snack in your first trimester as it is another carbohydrate rich recipe.
