Zucchini, a vegetable that you generally tend to associate with continental dishes and baked recipes, fits beautifully into our all-time desi favourite – the humble thepla!

The whole wheat flour dough is enriched with zucchini, ginger and garlic, and in a unique twist, we also put a little dried herbs and seasonings into it. This gives the Zucchini Thepla a very exciting, fusion flavour.

Do not rest the dough for too long as it will get watery and you will not be able to roll it properly. Be generous with the oil while cooking, or you might end up with dry and hard theplas.

Serve this delicious thepla with pickles and raita or dips . You can try exciting options like the Herbed Curd Dip and the Mustard Chilli Pickle .

The recipe is really innovative. I thought that Zucchini could only be used in exotic dishes but when I tried them as theplas using the Italian Seasonings, my kids just loved it. I served them with herbed curd dip as an appetizer during the party too. Guests just loved it.
