A traditional flatbread recipe from the heart of Gujarat, Mooli Thepla is made from a delectable dough of whole wheat flour reinforced with grated radish along with its leaves too. Curds are added to enhance the texture and flavour of the theplas, while chilli powder provides an enjoyable spiciness. Notice that no water is used to make the dough. Curds, a little bit of oil, and the juice that comes out of the radish are the fluids that bind the dough together.

   Mooli Paratha are slightly thicker than the Mooli Thepla. Also a variation of the paratha is Stuffed Mooli Paratha. Here are both the recipes.

Bored of eating those routine theplas. Heres a great twist to it. Adding raddish and raddish leaves boots the taste of the theplas. It is very easy to make, made in the same way as the theplas, but when you have it the taste is totally different. A nice tiffin treat for your kids as well.
