This is the real thing - a healthy snack that is full of protein, calcium and fibre. You'll be amazed at how easily this traditional Gujarati dish can be made 'healthy' by skipping the oil that is considered so essential to cook them. They also make a great travelling snack, as they stay well for a couple of days without refrigeration and also beautifully complement a hot cup of masala tea.

A simple variation to the theplas. Tastes good but not too masaledaar. So if you want it to be more spicy, add a little more chilli powder. Doodhi thepla and chai will complement beautifully!
