Lauki thepla recipe - Today I am going to share lauki thepla recipe which is very tasty and flavourful. To me this is truly an easy recipe. This is a simple version of mixing the ingredients and rolling the thin theplas, then shallow frying on a griddle with very less oil or ghee. It is a healthy dish for those who like to eat rotis for their breakfast or lunch.It goes really well with all varieties of chutney and raita. Above all you can easily pack it in the lunch box. Most of the time I make thepla for our breakfast.This method is so simple, even novice cook can make it. Whenever I have enough time for kitchen in the evening I knead the thepla dough in advance and store it in the refrigerator to use it in the morning. It saves time and comes handy during the morning rush. Check out other delicious paratha and thepla recipe.

Wash the lauki, peel and grate it. Heat oil in pan. Add the grated lauki and chilli powder. Saute until lauki is soft. Then add the coriander powder, jeera powder, salt and turmeric powder. Keep it aside to cool.
When the lauki mixture cools, add the yogurt and mix well. Add the besan and wheat flour. Mix well and knead it to a soft and firm dough. Now divide the dough into 10 portions and make round balls from it.
Flatten the ball and roll it to round roti by spreading some wheat flour. Heat a griddle and apply ghee or oil on it. Shallow fry the theplas until dark brown spot appears from both sides. Serve hot with chutney, raita, yogurt, pickle and subzi.
