How to make Bottlegourd Thepla

  1. Make a hard dough of the wheat flour, gram flour, salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder, curd , oil, bottlegourd and chopped cor iander.
  2. The bottlegourd in the dough leaves water in a while. So the dough should be hard. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Now make balls of the dough and flatten it with a rolling pin. Now cook on a (tava) griddle from both sides till they turn brown.
  4. Your theplas are ready to be enjoyed! You can store them or immediately eat them.

My Tip:

Theplas can be made in many varieties. You can make plain theplas or add methi instead of bottlegourd to make methi theplas. They go best with curd or mango pickle.
