Pudina / Mint Thepla

Thepla is a Indian flat bread and most popular in Gujarat, India. Thepla tastes great if the dough is made perfect. We add little milk and yogurt to make the dough which makes the thepla soft. You can add any vegetable of your choice to the flour along with spices. I have tried Methi / Fenugreek leaves and cabbage earlier. They tasted awesome. 

Today we are starting with 4th week of Blogging Marathon 79, my theme for the week is Kids Delight- Hide and Seek with Veggies. My first post the theme is " Mint Thepla". Here goes the recipe.......


Wheat flour / Atta  2 cups
Gram flour / Besan 2 spoons
Mint leaves 1 cup
Salt to taste
Coriander powder 1/2 spoon
Cumin seeds 1/2 spoon
Chili powder / red chili flakes  1/2 spoon
Asofoetida 1/4 spoon
 Yogurt 2-3 table spoons spoons
Milk / water if needed
Oil 5 spoons


Wash and chop milk leaves.
Heat pan and add 1 spoon oil, add mint leaves and cook for 30-90 seconds.
Remove and set aside.
In a mixing bowl add wheat flour, gram flour, salt, coriander powder, cumin seeds, chili powder, asodoetida , mint leaves and yogurt.
Combine everything well to make a soft dough.
If you thing yogurt coudnt make the dough soft add little milk or water to make the dough soft.
Cover and set aside for 15-20 minutes.
Now make equal portions of dough to roll as chapati.
Roll out each portion into thin circles, use wheat flour for dusting in between.
Heat tava and place the rolled thepla on it to cook, flip over after 30 seconds to cook on other side. 
Flip it again and add some oil on top, flip and repeat same.

The mint thepla is a excellent variation from the methi Ines . We normally make parathas but great idea to make the plans .

I make theplas often with all sorts of veggies and leftover rice but have never thought of making them with mint. Will try soon.

I'm yet to try thepla varieties and i'm sure that this pudhina thelpa is more flavorful than regular thepla.

Ritu Tangri said...

Mint flavor in theplas must be quite good. Will try it with parathas for sure

I add Lauki in my thepla. Generally I make them with fenugreek leaves or spinach. Never thought of trying them with mint leaves. Good recipe
