Arusuvai Chain Mystery Ingredient and Thepla

First of all, for all those who are not in the know, Bharathy, Srivalli and Lathamma started this Arusuvai Chain. Now the second season is organised by Sayantani of A Homemaker's Diary.

It is my turn in the arusuvai chain. Five weeks back, Archana  mentioned that a parcel has been sent to me. I was eagerly waiting for the parcel to arrive. Unfortunately When  the parcel from Archana arrived at my home in Chennai , I had come to my mother's place in Palani.  Atlast my mystery ingredient of the Arusuvai Chain came to my hands only two days back.  Archana had sent me a hand written note along with a lovely gift (a beautiful mobile phone pouch) and a tasty snack. Along with these, there was a box with the mystery ingredient - Kasturi Methi.

I thank Archana for this wonderful gift and including me in the Arusuvai Chain. The Recipe I am making with this Kasturi Methi is Thepla. I have taken this recipe from Mahi's kitchen.
