Top 10 Thepla Recipes

For Gujarati's, breakfast is synonymous to Thepla. They are also a popular tea-time snack and favorite travel food because they can be preserved for a good period of time. They are ideal to have on days when you have a little time to spare to roll and cook them. Just plain Theplas are tasty enough and can be eaten with Curd, Bateta nu Shaak and Chunda. 

You can also make a variety of Theplas, flavoured or stuffed. The most basic Thepla are made using whole wheat flour and spices but, a dash of jeera, til, methi leaves gives the Theplas an irresistible aroma and incredible flavor. Methi Thepla can be made in large batches and stored in the fridge. Warm them on tava and relish with a pickle.

You can also add veggies like mooli, zucchini or doodhi to make your Theplas healthier. As these vegetable leaches out water, do not rest the dough for too long as it will get watery and you will not be able to roll it properly. Zucchini Thepla with little-dried herbs and seasonings is unique and tastes best with herbed curd and exciting dips. 

Theplas also double up as super-tasty wraps. You can roll them up with various fillings and create Thepla Paneer Wrap or Cheesy Thepla Potato Wrap  a sumptuous snack for your evening hunger pang and an excellent tiffin treat. 

Desi twist to a Videshi recipe – these Thepla Quesadilla is surely a treat for your taste buds. Indo-Mexican fusion, by bringing together paneer with baked beans and crunchy veggies and a generous amount of cheese has tongue-tickling flavors. 

Theplas are perfect on the go breakfast and can be turned into healthy treats too. Multigrain Methi Thepla are wholesome and satiating. 

Our recipes are well instructed with the flame level, the method of making the dough and cooking them. Try our foolproof recipes to create the perfect Theplas.

A traditional flatbread recipe from the heart of Gujarat, Mooli Thepla is made from a delectable dough of whole wheat flour reinforced with grated radish along with its leaves too. Curds are added to enhance the texture and flavour of the theplas, while chilli powder provides an enjoyable spiciness. Notice that no water is used to make the dough. Curds, a little bit of oil, and the juice that comes out of the radish are the fluids that bind the dough together.

The first thing we all can think about karelas is their bitterness. But karela is extremely beneficial for diabetics and one can enjoy it more if you acquire the taste for it. These innovative Karela Thepla make use of the peels of the karela which we usually throw away. Wash and chop the peels into small pieces before adding it to the dough. For a tasty and diabetic friendly breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, check out our collection of Diabetic recipes .

Gujarati style theplas are a perfect treat for a relaxed sunday breakfast. Give them a new twist by wrapping them around a filling of potato bhaji, salad and red chilli sauce. This also makes a great Breakfast to go!
An interesting twist to the homely thepla makes it an exciting snack that will fascinate young kids. To make this sumptuous Cheesy Thepla Potato Wrap, fenugreek flavoured theplas are rolled up with a crispy potato mixture, which is flavoured with peppy masalas like amchur powder. You can make the theplas in advance if you wish to save time, but make sure you add enough oil so that it does not dry up and break when rolling. You can even give the thepla and the crispy potato separately, but rolling it up with a layer of cheese spread will make it more handy to eat and tastier too. Pack some Kurmura Chikki also, it will be an after lunch sweet treat for their taste buds.

Many times when i travel by train or bus, my mother pack a bunch of Theplas along chunda or dry peanut chutney in my office bag. She is very much strict on NOT TO HAVE food from train or bus stands.
