Why I Love This Recipe

his doodhi thepla also known as lauki thepla, bottle gourd thepla. This can be a tasty, delicious and health breakfast. We normally make thepla with besan and wheat flour, but you can also add jowar or bajra flour which ultimately make the theplas / parathas more healthy.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 doodhi, grated
2/3 cup wheat flour
1/8 cup curd
1/8 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/3 tsp oil
1/4 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp cilantro
Butter/ghee/oil to brush the top of theplas


Combine all the above ingredients and mix well. Make soft dough by kneading. Usually you do not require water to knead this dough, but use some if you need it.

Make 5 equal parts out of it. Make small balls of the parts.

Take one ball, make it flatten by placing between your palms and then dip it in wheat flour.

Take a rolling pin, and roll out each ball like a chapati. Use little wheat flour, while rolling.

Heat pan on medium flame, and put thepla on it.

Cook till it becomes golden brown from both the sides.

Now apply butter/ghee/oil to both the sides.

Remove from pan to a plate. Repeat the process for the remaining 4 balls.

Serve hot with Pickle or any vegetable.
