Cheesy Thepla Potato Wrap ( Tiffin Treats)

An interesting twist to the homely thepla makes it an exciting snack that will fascinate young kids. To make this sumptuous Cheesy Thepla Potato Wrap, fenugreek flavoured theplas are rolled up with a crispy potato mixture, which is flavoured with peppy masalas like amchur powder. You can make the theplas in advance if you wish to save time, but make sure you add enough oil so that it does not dry up and break when rolling. You can even give the thepla and the crispy potato separately, but rolling it up with a layer of cheese spread will make it more handy to eat and tastier too. Pack some Kurmura Chikki also, it will be an after lunch sweet treat for their taste buds.
