We are in awe of Gujarati cuisine. It has given us so many mouth-watering dishes that we have eventually made our own. From a range of snacks like dhokla to breakfast dishes like thepla, there are scores of recipes that the whole country has imbibed in their regular menu. Thepla is quite a fascinating dish curated by Gujaratis. It is a dry roti that doesn't need any curry or even dry sabzi to eat with. It tastes great as is and lasts for days without going bad. Thepla is usually made with whole wheat flour, oil and some spices. It looks like a regular paratha but tastes different and is thinner in thickness.
Every recipe is experimented upon, especially in India, where people from different regions have different taste preferences. Thepla too is made in various forms across the country. Besan, methi, bajra, and more such food are used to make different varieties of thepla. If you are a big fan of thepla and have tried almost all these thepla recipes, don't think it's over yet. We have another spin-off that will surprise you.
