Yummy thepla

Thepla is a delicious and versatile Indian flatbread that can be enjoyed in many ways. The combination of wheat flour and chickpea flour (besan) gives it a unique texture and nutty flavor. The addition of spices like turmeric, red chili powder, and cumin-coriander powder give it a nice taste. Thepla can be served with various types of Indian curries or chutneys, and it can be enjoyed as a breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can also make it more nutritious by adding vegetables like grated carrots, spinach, or fenugreek leaves to the dough.
