My friends specially Ruchita has been  demanding this recipe from ages. I am new to blogging but they usually ask me on the phone or whenever we meet.Thepla is easiest recipe you can have in your everyday cooking."Methi (fenugreek Leaves) thepla" is very common and famous,but you can use other vegetables like Spinach, Bottle gourd, grated Cabbage and fruit like Banana. Thepla is very good option for kids' lunch. You can have thepla with jam, yogurt, pickle(Chhunda) and any your choice of vegetable, but thepla goes best with Potato curry. It is one of the rarest item which can be stored for several days (cool environment).
