There is no need for an introduction to "Theplas". There are so many versions. The "Gujarati thepla" is very simple with curd which is often carried while travelling or goes in the picnic basket . Theplas stay longer. The "Rajasthani Thepla" really amused me. "Radish" in chapati? what? I was slightly happy because"I CAN TRICK MY BOYS BY HIDING THE RADISH IN THE CHAPATHI. SIMPLY WOW!"
My boys have very good "sense of smell". I had to use ginger- garlic paste to get rid of the radish smell. It tasted very good. I did not travel anywhere,I just wanted to try this out. I added some paneer to enhance the taste. End result= Everyone liked it.
Whole wheat flour/ chapati flour- 2 cups
Grated radish- 1 cup
Finely chopped fenugreek leaves- 1/4 cup
Finely grated paneer- 1/2 cup
Chilly powder- 1 tspn
Cumin seeds- 1 tspn
Turmeric powder- 1 tspn
Yogurt/ curd- 1 tbspn
Ginger- garlic paste -1 tspn
Salt to taste
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix all the ingredients uniformly. There is no need to add water while preparing the dough. The water released by the radish is quiet enough to knead the dough.
Knead the dough very gently and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Pinch lemon sized balls roll it and prepared the theplas by brushing with little oil. Trust me the theplas were very soft and loved by my kids. Try it and tell me your opinion.
