Thepla is a Gujarati flatbread made with wheat flour, fenugreek (methi) leaves and some spices for flavouring. The dough is kneaded with yogurt. Apart from methi you can also use some grated vegetables like doodhi, mooli palak for a change. You can serve them with some pickle or chunda for breakfast or even during lunch with some vegetables. Theplas are very healthy and can stay good in the refrigerator for a week. You can prepare them ahead and store when you are expecting some guests.
