DAL THEPLA – Recipe No. 19


Thepla is a Gujarati Snack. There are different types of Thepla which are made in all over India such as Methi (Fenugreek Leaves) Thepla, Dal (Lentils) Thepla, Lauki (Bottle Gourd) Thepla etc. Today I am making Dal Thepla.

It is a best way to use leftover dal at our home. At my home it is cooked when we have to travel for long. It is very light and healthy.

It is a best food for Vegetarians to take if you are going to a place where veg. food is difficult to get because it stays good for 2-3 days.

It is one of the best breakfast recipes on the day when you have little time as it can be prepared quickly.

It is very useful recipe for kids who don’t eat vegetables because Frankie or rolls can be made from Thepla with different Vegetable fillings and with different kind of sauces.
