Mooli Thepla- Indian Flat bread made with grated Radish,wheat flour and few basic Indian spices
Thepla is a Gujarati word for parathas ,which are usually made with some grated vegetable or fresh greens.In Northern India we use the term Parathas for plain and stuffed both type of parathas.. During winter stuffed parathas are made regularly at every North Indian Kitchen .During this season very good quality of radishes are available in the market and they are very good for health too. I make different recipes with radish – Radish ki sabji/ bhujiya, pickle , Lachcha Salad and parathas are made regularly. Among so many variety of stuffed parathas I make Gobhi Paratha and Stuffed Mooli Parthas often as they are favorite of my family.
Mooli Parathas are made with two methods,stuffed ones and the simple thepla. The most popular version is Stuffed version which is little tricky to make . If you have not squeezed the moisture from the grated Radish then you may have difficulty in rolling the paratha ,but this thepla version is quite easier to make as compared to the stuffed Mooli paratha. Just add grated radish in the dough and make delicious and crisp theplas. If still you have difficulty in rolling the theplas then use two thick polythene sheets and put the dough ball between the greased sheets and then roll easily.
These theplas can be served with tea as breakfast or serve for dinner and lunch with Aloo Tamatar ki sabzi, Mint Chutney and Raita
