  2. Add the paneer, coriander and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for another 1 minute, while stirring occasionally.
  3. Divide the stuffing into 4 equal portions and keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Place a thepla on a clean, dry surface and apply 1 tsp of chunda evenly over it.
  2. Place a portion of the stuffing in the centre and roll it up tightly.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make 3 more wraps.
  4. Serve immediately.

Handy tip:

  1. Chunda is a traditional gujarati sweet and sour pickle made by marinating grated raw mangoes in sugar and spices. It goes well with thepla, chapatis, and other savoury snacks. It is available in the market if you do not have time on hand.
