bon voyage with theplas !!

Remember those childhood days of train journeys when we used to enjoy puri-aloo and aam ka achaar(pickle)...!!!!
As we were heading for the paris trip I was just wondering what all eating stuff to pack for our journey...knowing that for three days we will be surviving on sandwiches/burgers/pizzas and all junky stuff....i wanted something indian ,easy to snack and tasty  I tried this gujju dish called THEPLA!

Simple to make,easy to eat and good to taste!!

Here's the recipe :


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup curd
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp dhania powder
1 tsp kasuri methi
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
  1. Mix all the ingredients together and knead into a soft dough using water only if required.
  2. Knead the dough till it is smooth and divide into equal portions.
  3. Using a rolling pin, roll out each portion into rounds.
  4. Cook each round on both the sides on a tava, smearing a little oil on both sides until brown spots appear on the surface.
  5. Theplas are ready

See how my hubby is enjoying thepla !!
So next time you are travelling/going for a picnic  or wanna try some snacking variety go gujju and try Theplas !!
