Thepla is a Roti-style bread which is heavily flavoured with fenugreek leaves, fresh ginger and other spices. They are made with curd which gives them a super light texture and fortified with Gram flour which make them slightly healthier than flatbread made with strong white flour and colour them a gorgeous saffron hue. Thepla are full of flavour and a staple on any Gujarati table, or more aptly – any Gujarati “dusterkhan”, which is the eating mat for the floor.
Here is my own recipe for Thepla which is an amalgamation of what I think I saw my Daddyma use and my own intuition. I think she’d be proud.
